In the wake of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, hubs and I started trying to make our elder son Yakee aware of how to take care of himself. Pappie has practiced standing by doorways with him and I have cautioned him to stay away from broken anything: mirrors, lamps, TV or even outdoor lighting fixtures.
But I think, most important of all is to practice obedience and following directions. We also have to have a great level of communication, otherwise, we won't be able to help each other in times of crises. Just a simple 'stay put' could save his life... or a 'get this' save mine.
