    It was very interesting lecture.
    He said that if you called 911, you should know how to explain were you were and what happened there. Also, he told us that you could speak in your original language, but befor that you should tell the police what language you were going to speak.
    Another information was also new for me, he said that there were non-emergency phone such as (604) 717-33-21. That number we should us in non-emergency cases.

      Hi Ivan,

      I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed the lecture. What he said about calling 911 really resonated with me as well. He really emphasized the fact that in stressful situations, people usually have trouble finding the right words to say, so being able to speak to someone who speaks the same language as you could be a lifesaver.

    He commanded not to put on headphone when we are walking alone. If we put on headphone, we can not hear that somebody is fellowing us so we might face a dangerous situation.

      Hi Grace,

      Thanks for making a comment. Yes, he warned us not to listen to our ipod while we’re walking at night. (In this case, we don’t want to use “commanded” because this word is too strong.
