Have you seen countless deaths in the media due to natural hazards globally? Have you seen selfies of people standing on top of the high points, then started to wonder what would happen next? Here are 5 things you can do to improve your chances of survival in dangerous situations.

Freezing or hot territory:

When it comes to finding something to drink, ice and snow are very reliable. Hunting animals should be your first instinct for food to eat. Call for help if possible. Dig a pit in order to capture animals for food, and make sure that you look after your clothing, depending in which territory you in, whether cold or hot.

Natural disasters:

There are some natural disasters that are either visible or invisible. Always be prepared! You can’t do anything to stop your house from getting destroyed by a tornado or earthquake. By getting prepared, I mean getting fuel for your car, travelling away on safe routes, and securing your home as best you can.

Taking selfies in dangerous areas:

If you’re thinking about hanging around with your mates and taking a selfie on top of a high skyscraper of some sort, don’t do that. There might be a high risk of you dying due to the dangerous position you were in, before falling of a skyscraper. Or if there’s a bull running at you and all you’re worried about is taking a selfie - don't take the risk.

Car/lorry attack:

Street barriers are a price that is worth paying. They still won’t affect the amount of teenagers who die from car accidents, since 140,086 personal-injury road traffic accidents were reported to the police in 2015. What really matters most is the consequences of not paying attention while crossing the road, whether driver or pedestrian. Pay attention!
