1. The “Good Samaritan in Drug Overdose Act” is a Canadian Law which provides some legal protection for individuals (or their friends) who seek emergency help during a drug overdose, and their American Counterparts: “911 Good Samaritan” laws in some states.

4. If you “butt-dial” someone’s cell phone and see that “x” amount of time was recorded to their voicemail, don’t hang up. Press “#” or “0”. You can listen to the options to cancel or re-record the voicemail.
There’s a time limit before the call automatically ends. I believe it’s around ~20-30 minutes (might be less, and could vary depending on each wireless provider), but as long as you press # or 0 within that time frame, you should be good.
5. This is the way to operate a Fire Extinguisher using the P.A.S.S system.
PULL THE PIN
AIM THE EXTINGUISHER AT THE BASE OF THE FIRE
SQUEEZE THE HANDLE
SWEEP THE NOZZLE SIDE TO SIDE TO EVENLY DISTRIBUTE THE EXTINGUISHING AGENT.
You can always get a new home, car, building etc.. You can’t get a new you. Smoke inhalation and flames can spread faster than you realize and can kill you quickly. Always make sure you have an escape route and call your local emergency number to report the fire regardless of whether you extinguished it already.
