Did you know that if a fire breaks out in your kitchen, the least thing you should do is try to put it out with water? Do you know how to use the fire extinguisher that is in the car or at home? Which is the valve that you use in the gas cylinder: the three-cornered one or the threaded one? Do you want to learn CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation)?
