Do you use the Privacy settings on any social media accounts you have to protect your personal information? Do you take precautions as a pedestrian to make yourself visible and safe from getting hit by a car? Do you always wear a helmet when riding a bike and follow all traffic rules? Do you know what to do in the case of cuts, scrapes, severe bleeding, bites, stings, electrical shocks, and burns? Would you immediately call 911 if someone stopped breathing (including choking) or their heart stopped? Count your “Yes” and “No” responses. The more “Yes” responses you have, the more healthy accident and injury prevention and response habits you exhibit.
