Snakes usually bite defensively, rather than actively attacking humans, and in the US it’s as common for people to be bitten around the home as it is out in the bush or other wild areas. If you’re ever bitten by a snake, keeping these tips in mind might save your life.
1. Call An Ambulance Immediately
You should treat any snake bite as an emergency, regardless of whether you think the snake was venomous or not. Many snakes look similar, and if you wait to see if you feel symptoms of venom poisoning, it might be too late by the time you get help. You need to stay as still as possible, so rather than running for a phone, use a mobile phone or have someone else go and call for help.
