Tips to Recover from a Hurricane & How to Prepare for the Next Natural Disaster

Tips Recover from a Hurricane 

A report by FEMA shows that 40 percent of micro-businesses close up after natural calamities. This is a wake-up call for companies to prepare with firewalls like the right type of insurance for natural disasters.

According to attorney Brandon J. Clapp of Swift Currie’s Insurance Coverage, “micro-businesses hardly recover from a hurricane because most of them lack adequate capital to recoup losses due to natural calamities.”

Plus, most of these young companies do not have the resources to re-establish themselves after a disaster. Damages and losses from natural disasters can be detrimental to small business owners who still rely on small loans.

He adds that a 2013 study by The American Sustainable Business Council discovered that small companies lost around $3000 per day, each day they closed operations after a natural disaster.

How to Set New Year Health Goals

Everybody has their 2021 resolutions, but most of us forget to include health concerns when planning for a new year. Yet health and general wellness should be priority number one for anyone looking to achieve all other goals.

According to a Dec. 2020 poll by Finder.com, nearly half of Americans have health-based new year health goals to chase in 2021 (making it the leading category among others like money, family, love and career).

Researchers found health as a primary concern for 43.53% of males and 47.45% of females. But how many of us achieve our yearly health goals?

Another poll posted in the Journal of Clinical Psychology found that of the Americans that set a 2020 resolution, 35 percent achieved all their objectives while 49 percent met some of their goals. Only 16 percent did not work towards their resolutions.

Choosing reasonable goals, adequate planning and undying persistence is the secret to setting and meeting your health resolutions. Below are some steps to set workable goals.

Why Bystanders Must Understand the Chain of Survival

The Chain of Survival is a 5-step course of action rescuers or paramedics take to enhance a victim’s survival during sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). Upon the occurrence of SCA, time becomes a crucial factor. Each second counts and rescuers must take immediate action to save a life.

Scientifically, the human brain lacks a reserve of oxygenated blood like other body organs. And without the continuous supply of blood, brain damage can quickly occur within the shortest time possible.To save more SCA victims, passersby must recognize the symptoms and administer prompt medical care.

But identifying emergencies and taking quick steps is only the first move in a 5-step survival chain.

What is Agonal Breathing?

A person is said to have agonal breathing when he/she has difficulty breathing or produces a gasping sound. Such breathing is usually an indication that someone is suffering from a severe medical condition like sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) or stroke.

Gasping respiration isn’t proper breathing; instead, it’s a result of the brainstem reflex. It occurs when the heart fails to aid the circulation of oxygenated blood. Other times, it happens when the lungs stop supplying enough oxygenated blood.

Anyone who experiences gasping respiration should seek immediate medical intervention, whether or not it’s due to a medical emergency.
