Being Safe

People have sent me emails on being safe today. The world of safety differs from “how to fall from great heights” to Internet security – but it seemed as if someone was telling me to do a Safety Byte. Here are some of the resources – I hope that there are helpful but that you will never need them.

Survive a Long Fall http://www.wikihow.com/Survive-a-Long-Fall
It made my palms sweat just reading about it. But

Security Evolution Quick Hits http://www.secev.com/news/bulletin.htm
A fun and helpful newsletter on Internet security from Mike Endrizzi (MN security guru)

USFA Kids http://www.usfa.dhs.gov/kids/flash.shtm
A fire safety site for kids. (Warning: they will ask about batteries in the smoke alarms if they see this – so be prepared.)

National Crime Prevention Council http://www.ncpc.org/Topics/Personal_Safety/index.php
They have topics on nearly everything for adults and kids.

Keep Schools Safe http://www.keepschoolssafe.org/
Info for parents, kids, and educators. (Warning: if I had this much info on lab safety as a high schooler I could have led an effective campaign to ban chemistry or at least make it an elective.)
