Whatever the situation is that you are approaching, always use Caution. Don’t take anything for granted and Don’t expect anything to be a certain way. Take a moment to be look at the scene before you go running in gung ho. Stop and assess the situation. Take in the big picture. I know it’s not so easy to do so when you are “in the thick of it’, but your safety may very well depend on it (in fact I’d wager a bet that it does). Know where all the dangers are and what level of danger that danger represents to you. Keep in mind that things may not always be as they first appear. Sometimes the things that seem to not be reason for concern can end up being the biggest dangers. Keep those eyes and ears open and Be AWARE and be Cautious.
Remember Always use CAUTION and Stay SAFE
