1. Stay calm. On average, you’ll have 30-120 seconds of float time before the car sinks. That’s plenty of time to escape if you act quickly.  2. Don’t open door. It’s possible to escape this way, but difficult to do even in just a foot of water. Car will also sink immediately after, making it impossible for passengers to escape.  3. Remember four words: “Seatbelts. Children. Windows. Out.” First, unbuckle your seatbelt. If buckle is stuck, cut it off.  4. Make sure children and passengers can get out of their seatbelts. Guide and instruct them to exit through their own window if possible, or else pull them to the front of the car.  5. Escape through window. Try rolling it down first. If that doesn’t work, use an auto rescue tool to safely shatter the window. It’s nearly impossible to break using your arms or legs.  6. Swim out through the window and to safety. This can call be done in well under 30 seconds if you stay calm and have mentally rehearsed the scenario before it happens.
