Emergencies can happen anytime, so being prepared for a home firstaidkit is importantfor your family. Having a proper one in your home is an easy but necessary part of goodemergency preparation.

Pick a good container

One good choice is a large translucent plastic container, which makes it easy to seethe materials inside. Lunch boxes are also another good choice. Basically, if it's bigenough, portable, and at least somewhat waterresistant,it can make a good container. Regardlessof your container choice, it should be easy to recognize, so write“ FIRST AID” onit with a marker.

Make your kit safely accessible

When your child is crying about a“ booboo”on his/her knee, you don't want yourhome kit buried on the back of a closet or lost because it's not being returned to the samespot after each use.

Teach your family the kit

For younger children who shouldn't use the items in the kit, teach them where it's located,so they could show a visitor, a relative or a babysitter to it. For older children andadults, instruct them in how to use the items in it. Use a firstaidinstruction booklet, likethose available from the American Red Cross for guidance and place a booklet in the kit forreference.

Keep your kit up?to?date

No one wants to fetch a firstaidkit and find the bandage box empty or the pain relieversexpired( 过期). Keep track of supply amounts and expiration dates regularly.

Create a checklist in the kit

Record every item on a sheet of paper and keep it in the kit. Besides, record theamounts of the items and expiration dates next to the listed items on the checklist that youinclude in your kit. In this way, anyone who wants to reach the kit can immediately knowwhat it includes and doesn't include. Also, they can be clear whether the items can be used.

In many films, when the owner is in trouble, his or her beloved dog would run home toseek help without fail. Yet, while this image has become an unforgettable part of our popculture, few people knew that the same sort of response applied to service dogs.

Once a blind man fell flat on his face, which was awful but finally harmless. His servicedog, however, was trained to get an adult if the owner had a seizure (癲痫), and it wassure that this was a seizure. However, while the dog did what it was taught, the woman itfound was merely annoyed but not alarmed. Thankfully, the dog's owner was not in the situationof a medical emergency. However, the experience inspired him to share this informationon social media.“ If a service dog without a person approaches you, it means the personis down and in need of help,” the owner explained. “Don't get scared, don't getannoyed and follow the dog! If the first person doesn't cooperate, it moves on.”

Referring to the accident, a TV presenter asked a dog trainer, Olivia, some basic questionsabout service dogs, including how humans should react if an unaccompanied servicedog approaches them.

“What they're going to do is sniff and gently push your leg,” the trainer explained,specifically noting that service dogs are not usually trained to jump or bark.“ If you see adog in a vest without a person around it, follow it.” When asked if one should say somethingto indicate they're prepared to follow the dog, Olivia said there's no clear command.“The spoken language is not going to be a secret password,” she said. “You can say,‘What?' or‘ Where? or just start walking wherever the dog leads.”

Olivia concluded the TV show by adding that those who rely on service dogs can traintheir companion to move along to someone else, if the first person the dogs come uponreacted negatively to their request. Doing so could finally save the owner's life.

4. What do we know about service dogs?

D. They only exist in the pop culture.

5. In the owner's emergency, a service dog will generally .

D. To spread the knowledge of dealing with service dogs.


Battling freezing temperatures, total darkness, and other dangerous flying conditions,a plane left the South Pole on Wednesday after rescuing a sick worker from a US researchbase. After the patient and flight crew rested, the plane made its way to South America,where the patient received medical care.

The daring rescue mission began last week when two planes flew from Canada to Rothera,a British base on the Antarctic Peninsula. On Tuesday, just one of the planes left Rotheraon a 10hourtrip to the AmundsenScottSouth Pole Station, where the sick workerwas located.

The station is usually unreachable during Antarctica's long winter, from February toOctober. Fortyeightpeople live at the base, including a doctor and a physician's assistant.But when the crew there determined the worker needed medical help that couldn't beprovided on site, the emergency rescue mission began.

A small crew, including a pilot, a copilot,a medical worker and a flight engineer,made the 1500miletrip from Rothera in a Twin Otter plane. It is the only type of plane capableof flying in Antarctica's winter cold. It can operate in temperatures as low as minus103. The temperature in the South Pole on Tuesday was minus 73. In such condition, an aircraft's fuel and even its batteries need to be warmed up before it can take off.

The pitchblackskies, the threat of high winds and sudden weather changes makesuch flights extremely risky and rare. This rescue is only the third time an emergency missionhas been made to the research base since 1999. The National Science Foundation,which runs the station, has not said who was rescued, or the medical condition of theperson. The names of the crew members who made the daring flight have not been madepublic either. But according to Peter West, a National Science Foundation spokesman, themission“ went all according to plan”.

A. It is a British research base.

B. It is a US research base.

C. It is ten hours' flight away from Canada.

First aid is emergency care for a victim of sudden illness or injury until more skillfulmedical treatment is available. First aid may save a life or improve certain vital signs includingpulse, temperature, a clear airway and breathing. In minor emergencies, first aidmay prevent a victim's condition from worsening and provide relief from pain. First aidmust be given as quickly as possible.

First aid requires rapid assessment of victims to determine whether lifethreateningconditions exist. One method for assessing a victim's condition is known as ABC, whichstands for:

A—Airway: Is it open and clear?

B—Breathing: Is the person breathing? Look, listen and feel for breathing.

C—Circulation: Is there a pulse? Is the person bleeding extremely? Check skin color and temperature for additional signs of circulation problems.

A midnight rescue

It was not uncommon to carry out tasks at night as rescuers. Harry and David were informedof their task when it was nearly midnight. It was urgent, so there was no time to hesitate.They headed into the forest.

The forest was black and silent. A little way into it they reached a fork in the earthpath. Harry and David took the left path. They walked in silence, their eyes on the ground,watching out for the traps like big pits (坑) set by the illegal hunters. Every now and then aray of moonlight through the branches above lit a spot of scarlet (猩紅的) blood on thefallen leaves.

David saw that Harry looked very worried, asking, “Could Unicorn be hurt thatbadly?” Harry answered,“ If we can't find it as soon as possible, it doesnt stand muchchance to survive.” Of course, Unicorn was not the animal in fairy tales but the nickname ofa 3yearoldelephant, the last wild elephant in this forest. The nickname was given by thebiodiversity rescuers who were protecting every member in this forest. They knew Unicornwas obedient and not afraid of human beings and that sometimes put it in danger.“ Withoutit, the forest was not complete. Those illegal hunters should be thrown into prison,” Harrythought, carrying his firstaidkit on his back and walking forward with his flashlight.

It seemed that thick fog would come at any time, which would increase the danger.Harry hurried into the heart of the forest with David. They walked for nearly half an hour,deeper and deeper. There were blood splashes (血迹) on the roots of a tree, as though thepoor creature had been struggling around in pain close by“. We must hurry up,” said Harry.


Paragraph 1:

However, it was really not easy for them to find it.______________________

Paragraph 2:

Without delay, Harry knelt down to do first aid on its wound with David holding the flashlight.______________
