Staying Safe

Tips on how to stay safe in dangerous situations

Simple things to do

  1. Be aware of your surroundings
  2. Avoid putting headphones in both ears. If someone is targeting you, you may not be able to hear them coming after you if you have your headphones in.
  3. Don't isolate yourself with someone you don't know, or someone whom you don't trust.
  4. Try not to have too many things with you. If you need to run, having too many bags with you may slow you down
  5. Carry pepper spray, and/or a whistle with you. If you feel threatened, blowing your whistle may attract the attention of others
  6. Learn self-defense techniques
