As you know, I’ve declared war on criminal assaults of every kind and in addition to my last post on Pepper Spray, I’ve been made aware of another story. It appears that a young girl who was waiting for the public transit was robbed, or almost robbed of her phone. When she begins to fight back, the bully tries to push her around only to find out that there’s more coming than he bargained for. In the end, justice is served, the girl is safe and after utilizing advanced self defense, a lesson is obviously learned. Though you may not be as well trained as this person was, buying pepper spray and learning how to use it is definitely a step in the right direction. Be aware, be knowledgeable and be safe!
A great video of a firefighter who found a casualty from a house fire. It’s bad enough to loose things in a house fire but when a family loses it’s pet, it can be like losing a family member. This brave firefighter took the time to use his life saving passion and skills to save this little kitten. Need a pick me up in a cruel world? Watch this video.
Heimlich procedure and if it’s okay to do it on a person who may have recently had a surgery on their back. The quick answer is YES! If you think about it, what’s more dangerous, the Heimlich on a sore back or letting the person die from a blocked airway? I wanted to take a couple minutes and answer this question directly and I hope it helps.
I was sent a tweet from our friends across the Ocean who are involved in rescue. It appears that a teenager was washed out to sea and the brave men and women who make up the UK Coast Guard, risked their lives to try and save this child. Regardless the outcome, I wanted to thank them personally by featuring their rescue video.
As in all accidental deaths, the more we know about how to prevent them, the better off we will all be. In this episode, I answer an email that asked if I could combine training with some more realistic visuals about how a person may actually look when they’re drowning vs. the hollywood melodramatic look. The rescue fan was concerned that many people may not even realize that a drowning victim could be very quiet and not really even yell for help.
I hope this training helps us all have a much safer summer of fun!
I tried to release this video episode on Friday and unfortunately had some media problems. I wanted to make sure to address some of the questions regarding how people could be injured by the Meteor explosion if it never hit the earth. Great question, because the meteorite entered earths atmosphere so fast and burned so brightly when it came in, it drew thousands of peoples attention and they went near windows to gaze up at the aftermath of it’s entry. While people were standing by, the sonic boom was so loud, it shattered windows, caved in buildings and in some cases even blew in doors. The shards of broken glass was the greatest cause of injuries. But some reports said there could have been ear drum damage, some eye and vision disorders and I believe even one cardiac arrest though this may be hard to confirm. If you have any interest in what happened want to see shocking footage and how these injured people could have protected themselves, be sure to watch this episode of RoyOnRescue.
When natural or unnatural disasters strike, the chance of getting emergency help to your doorstep fast while the EMS services are exhausted is very slim. I wanted to take this opportunity to talk about a situation that doesn’t get discussed much. What effect does a hurricane or natural disaster have on the rest of the community? We sometimes forget the fact that though the rest of the world is distracted by a storm or other disaster related buzz, people still get sick, heart attacks still happen, car accidents still happen but we don’t often think about from where the next ambulance, fire truck or police car is going to be responding. This episode of RoyOnRescue addresses this issue and urges people who may be in high risk of needing an ambulance or other EMS service to think proactively and make arrangements before the emergency happens. Think about moving loved ones with fragile health to temporary locations that may not be effected by the hurricane. Can the person stay with a relative until the community has recovered? What is the back up plan if one can be found? I hope this RoyOnRescue episode get’s everyone thinking and will hopefully help prevent a needless death due to not having the appropriate plans in place. Stay safe, our prayers are with everyone who has been and is effected by hurricane Sandy and other storms.
