During a fire, walk low to the ground to prevent smoke inhalation

Smoke inhalation could lead to unconsciousness. Everyone knows that hot air rises above. So, during a fire, bend down and run to safety.

If the smoke is too much, bend to your hands and knees, and crawl on four limbs. Cover your nose and mouth using a mask or a cloth while you crawl through the smoke.

Crayons can be burned like candles in case of an emergency


Do you know you can burn those colorful crayons like candles? If you don’t have any candles at home, a crayon can continue to burn for nearly half an hour in case of an emergency.

Just like candles, you need to melt the base to make it stay fixed on the spot. Once the crayon is fixed, you can start lighting it from on the top.

It takes a few seconds to catch fire. Once it catches fire, it can continue to burn for nearly 30 minutes depending on the type of crayon you have.
