    Vocabulary: Help and Rescue...

    Help... Rescue... Save, perhaps... certainly... In order to accomplish those tasks, many professionals, volunteers, and a great number of citizens too, after sessions of training, practise the "Life Saving Techniques" that we should all know. These techniques are taught at school, in towns, by real professionals, so that every citizen can act in case of domestic, daily life or leisure accidents. Besides, in many different fields, some "professionals" practise a real "calling" and sometimes become heroes, rescuing or simply working for others and serving them.

    Throughout most countries in Europe the emergency number is 112. In fact 112 also works in the UK, but most people just use 999; after growing up watching Hollywood movies, most people are aware that in North America, the number to call in an emergency is 911. Just like their neighbours, Canada's emergency number is 911.

    If you have already experienced, or just imagined, a situation where you have thought: "What should I do?", have a look at these links and turn to  your local "Safety and Emergency Guides". These techniques should become automatic reactions in order to compensate for the normal stress, and avoid panic, in these difficult situations. A real education and training will be given and therefore, in your personal, family and civic-minded life, you'll know what to do to help while waiting for real professionals
