An emergency situation can happen anywhere — in your favorite supermarket, on the street, and even in your own home. Unfortunately, we can’t predict them, but we can certainly be prepared and learn how to deal with them in order to save our own life and the lives of our loved ones.
We at Apegeo hope that you’ll never find yourself in a dangerous situation, but just in case you do, it would be better for you to know these 14 survival tips that will help you stay safe and sound.
14. Use a bra to protect your lungs.
If you’re caught in a raging fire, you should immediately protect your lungs from toxic ash, smoke, and dust. In this case, you can use the cup of your bra as a debris mask — just cover your nose and mouth with it and tighten the straps to attach
13. Use condoms to waterproof your gadgets.
Condoms can help you to keep your phone and other essential things dry even if you have to jump into water with them. They can also be used to store spare drinking water because they can hold up to a gallon of water.
12. Make a fishing rod out of a can.

To create your own camping lantern, simply strap a headlamp around a jug filled with water, making sure that the light is pointed inside.
8. Use a crayon as a candle.
Lemon juice can conduct electricity. Just take zinc nails, copper clips, or even a dime and a penny and insert them into a lemon. Connect the metal parts to one another with a wire and leave the ends of it free. If you touch the exposed wire tips together, you’ll get a spark that can start a small fire.
