How to Be Alert and Aware for Safety

                                                                                    Instructions

1

Assume full responsibility for self protection. Take a class in self-defense that includes the psychology of combat as well as the physical aspect.

2
Have a cell phone handy. Travel only in familiar, well-lit, populated areas whenever possible. Ask for assistance when feeling uncomfortable about a particular situation, like walking to the car or returning to a hotel room alone.

3
Learn simple self-defense techniques that are easy to use. Hold your largest car key between the index and ring finger, turned vertically, when walking to a parked car. If attacked, punch at your assailant's eyes and face with the key blade protruding.
4
Be smart about avoiding danger. If confronted by a suspicious person shout "No." Carry a whistle and blow it loudly and often until someone responds. Call 911 immediately. Throw off would-be stalkers by acting unstable.

5
Be alert to your surroundings, the environment and those in it. Prepare to respond quickly to incapacitate an attacker and allow time to escape. Look out for neighborhood watch signage.
6
Pay attention to the intuitive ability that signals danger. Listen to the heightened sense of fight or flight; that's the body's means of self-preservation. Walk with confidence without stooping, cowering or looking fearfully over the shoulder.
