What Would I Do?

Sometimes when I am lying in bed at night trying to sleep, the thought crosses my mind that if there was a fire in our home, we might not be able to escape. My family’s bedrooms are all on the top floor of our house. If a fire occurred in the lower levels of our home, trapping us upstairs, just how would we escape?

The more I think about it, the more it worries me. I should definitely look into purchasing several escape ladders and holding a fire drill with our children.

While I know that emergency preparedness is of the upmost importance, my husband and I have yet to put together any sort of emergency plans for our home and family. We definitely do not have a stock pile of food, a list of emergency contact phone numbers or even a way to escape from the top floor of our home in the event of a fire.

In fact, the more I think about it, the more driven I am to stop everything and get cracking on our emergency preparedness.

bleedingpack One thing we do have is an Intelligent First Aid™ kit. I am very thankful for the kit. It is separated into individually labeled and color-coded injury packs so that I have all of the supplies and easy to follow instructions for managing a specific injury.

At the squeeze of a button, the audio module in each injury card narrates step-by-step instructions to manage the injury, pausing and repeating when necessary.

Comment and Win

How prepared are you for an emergency? Please tell me that you are in a better place than I am with your emergency preparation.

Where do you keep your emergency contacts? Would your children know which family members or friends to call in the event of an emergency?

Let’s discuss emergency preparedness in the comments section below. Each comment counts as an entry into our final drawing for an Intelligent First Aid kit.

You never know when an emergency will happen. It is very important to be prepared!

I haven’t been out trick or treating in years. But I make sure to remind my nieces that they need to stay by their Dad and I also make sure each of them knows their important personal info. One tip is to only visit houses you know the people at or avoid going door to door and attend a Halloween party that night instead.

I got 100% ready in a medical emergency- but the situation was calm when taking the test. I’ve often wondered when that moment happens, will it all still be there for me to remember to do so well!?! Panic, stress has a way of taking over, especially when it comes to a child or a loved one.

What a fantastic idea, what a real life saving concept! Thank you for the opportunity.

I got a 67% and that surprised me! First aid is so important, everyone should be educated. Our safety tip during Halloween is that we never go to someone’s house that we don’t know. I did that when I was a kid but we just don’t feel safe doing it now in the 21st century. Which is really sad. :(

When my youngest daughter was born premature, I had to take a CPR class at the hospital before I could bring her home (she was on a monitor and was still very tiny when she got home). I also had my caregiver take the course before she started watching over her. I am very happy that we did, because one day while I was at work, my daughter stopped breathing and my caregiver was able to resuscitate her before the ambulance arrived. Now, both of my older daughters are in the healthcare field and are well-versed in CPR, so they gave me lessons (I just got a lesson on the ‘new’ CPR) last week. Hopefully, I’ll never have to use it, but if I do, at least I’ll know I’m prepared.

I also got 100% on the quiz, but I’m a a registered nurse, so that’s to be expected. I have personally used CPR on countless occasions, as I work on a Medical Surgical Floor.
Here’s my personal CPR story. I was 7 years old and I was settling in with my parents in our new apartment in NY, we were busy unpacking. All of a sudden, a frantic woman bursts through our front door with a purple faced toddler in her arms screaming “Please help, my baby is choking!” My Dad was also a Registered Nurse (back in those days that was nearly unheard of) I watched as My Dad, my Hero, performed CPR -after the heimlich maneuver- so deftly and swiftly to get that little girl breathing again.It turns out that she had an animal cracker lodged in her throat. I knew from that day on that I would be a nurse like my Dad.

I think that the Intelligent First Aidâ„¢ kit is wonderful, organized and really a must have in any home, and well worth the price. As a matter of fact, I am a long time Girl Scout leader and I’d love to have this for my Junior troop to use and learn from. Many times in emergency situations, even the most experienced people can get somewhat panicky (especially if its our own family) and the embedded audio chips, color guidebook and medical essentials all neatly available at your fingertips is wonderful and beyond priceless!

Safety Tip: Keep an aloe plant in the kitchen to use in case of burns. What a useful plant to have! I love mine though I’ve never used it on myself. Those in my household who have are impressed by the soothing the aloe provides by simply breaking off a piece and applying the serum onto the burn wound as soon as possible.

I try to minimize stops by doing as much as I can each time we stop. Such as gas, food and bathroom at the same time. It saves so much time as we travel.

I always have a plastic shoe box full of things that children may need when they get hurt or sick. I include a trash bag (for throwing up), wipes, sanitizer, Motrin, Bandaids, Bug Spray, Antibotic ointment, anti-itch ointment, and some other random things. I can know that I will have whatever I need if an emergency arises.
Try to have games or new songs or new snacks or new coloring books to give them something fresh or different to anticipate.

I am not very good at having first aid items around. After reading this it has reminded me to do better. I don’t even think I have bandaids in my diaper bag or glove box. When accidents happen though I tend to remain calm now because if I am calm my daughter does not cry so hard or even at all sometimes.

When we decorate for the holidays, mainly Halloween and Christmas, the first thing we do is make sure all light cords and extension cords we use are intact. Also, when using extension cords, make sure that they aren’t laying where foot traffic is, so that nobody can trip on them and fall, or trip on them and pull something down, causing injury. We also make sure that even though our lights really don’t get hot, I like to make sure that there is nothing touching the lights, like sheer curtains, etc, that could catch fire.

My tip for holiday safety. When burning candles during the holidays (or any time of year really) I burn Gold Canyon candles. I have 8 children and children are drawn to the fire on candles. The wax Gold Canyon uses will not burn if it gets spilled on someone. I of course always keep them up and out of the way but know that if they got knocked over my child would not be burned makes me feel better about burning candles.

Reply

167 cris November 19, 2009 at 12:40 pm

We probably spend a little more time thinking of safety with the outdoor decorations, since they’re often on while we’re not home. Mostly we consider wind and wet, which is what we have all fall and winter here, and use timers for everything. The outside plugs are individual gfis as well.

We also have 72 hour kits for our family (that need some updating…) and a food storage with a year supply of food. I still need to get non food items for storage as well as cash.

My husband and I have both taken 2 CPR classes since our first child was born, but you are right — stress and adrenaline sometimes cause a brain lapse.

I teach CPR and First aid so hopefully I am a little prepared :) As far as my home….we have a little food storage and a carbon monoxide detector. Us newlyweds are slow to get going I guess.

Luckily I got 100% on part 1 and part 2 first aid quizzes. Teaching CPR and First Aid is paying off!

what a great idea & an even more wonderful of a give away! I’m embrassed to say what I got on the quiz……..well, I guess a 77% isn’t too bad…yes it is! But living here in FL. we’re made to be more aware of being prepared. Especially since the hurricanes of 2004 & 2005! So I do have a hurricane box of supplies that include food, flashlights,new batteries every year,a radio & all the things I wish I’d had for the first time. Thanks for another great give away!

Wow. I didn’t know anything like this existed. it’s awesome. I know when My oldest boy was a baby I had to perform CPR on him often because his lungs were not fully developed and he would turn blue. Without the proper training he would have died. This kit woud be a godsend.

We have been trying to get 72 hour kits ready for the 3 of us. My husbands and mine are almost done, but we need to improve my son’s. Until recently, he was nursing so I wasn’t too worried about food for him, but now he is weaned so we need to get something together for him. We also have a longer term food storage, but that won’t help much if we have to leave the house. We have a carbon monoxide detector too. We need to get a fire escape plan ready though. I guess we are prepared in some ways and not in others.

I did so badly I didn’t even see the percent. I know I am not prepared for an emergency. I have white wash cloths, does that count?

I got an 83%. Not too bad, but I still get anxious thinking about whether or not I will know what to do in an emergency.
Thanks for a great giveaway!

Well, I got 100%, but only after retaking the test 5 times. I kept getting 83%, and the ones I got wrong, were so close, so I HAD to keep going until I got it all right. Now, I know what to do! (But only in those exact situations …)

I’ve watched many videos and sat through classes, however I do not know if I will remember any of it in an emergency situation. This would be great to have at home with little ones.

253 DeAnna December 3, 2009 at 3:56 pm

I am not as prepared as I should be. We have talked with the kids about where to meet should there be a fire and we escape through different doors/windows but we have not practiced anything. We usually have extra food in the house but nothing labeled for an emergency! We should think through some of this. Thanks!

254 DeAnna December 3, 2009 at 4:04 pm

I took the quiz and it said I got 67% but I only missed one question. Very interesting information though! Thanks!

Thanks.

I dont think anyone is prepared mentally 4 an emergency cause it happens so fast sometimes our minds go blank but in that case we were up against an emergency would react to the best that we know how.Nombodys perfect,we all make mistakes in emergency situations even doctors..lol
