HOW TO BE SAFE AT HOME WHEN YOU LIVE WITH OTHERS


 
It is important that you put your safety and that of your loved ones as a priority in order that you prevent crimes from taking place in your home and society. Some tips are as follows;
  • Do not leave the house keys in obvious places like under the mat or in the flower pot when leaving the house. Thieves and criminals know where to search.
  • Always check the peephole before opening the door for someone or talk so as to recognize the person’s voice.
  • Always tell the ones you live with where you are going and at what time you intend to return.
  • Keep dangerous items like knives, guns, poisons and other harmful substances well out of reach.
  • Be responsible for each other and always double check that something has been done, for example, always check that the other has actually locked the doors or turned off the stove et cetera.
  • Keep emergency numbers at hand all the time.
  • Train yourselves in rendering first aid.
  • Train yourselves in defense tactics in case of attack. *

HOW TO BE SAFE IN A PUBLIC PLACE


 

Public places like school, work, religious place, at the park or tourist sites are places we normally expect to be safe, who would want to harm us in such a controlled environment with many people around to witness, however we should not leave that to chance. Important tips on safety in a public place;

  • Always keep your items like suitcase and handbag at hand where you can see them and do not leave them unattended. 

  •   Always notify someone else when you are leaving and when you think you will return. 

  • If possible, stick with your friends.

  •   Always take a picture if you suspect something wrong. 

  •  Avoid going to the parking lot alone at night or if it is a dark environment.

  • Avoid showing expensive items or flashing money.

  • Be fully aware of your surroundings and avoid playing games or music on your phone as this can reduce your alertness.

  • Always have enough credit and battery power in your phone incase of an emergency.
