Women’s Guide to Safety
There are many dangers that women are vulnerable to whether they are inside or outside the home. Thus, women need to take extra measure to ensure that they are safe all the time. You can keep yourself safe by following the tips given below.
You should be aware of things when you are in public. You wont leave yourself vulnerable if you are very much aware of what is happening around you. If you are walking to your car late at night, don’t keep on looking at your phone. Your phone will impair your awareness of your surroundings. Not being aware of what’s happening gives you little time to react when there is trouble. If you go home immediately, then you can have time on your phone.
If your doorbell is rung past dark, answer it. You can make intruders know that you are home by answering it because if you don’t, then they will think that no one is home and so they attempt to enter in. Be ready to call the police when your doorbell is rung past dark.
Listen to your instincts. If a stranger asks for your help and you feel uncomfortable, don’t help. IT is not your obligation to help anyone. If you are alone with the person make sure to walk toward the closest group of people you can find.
When you are at home alone, lock your doors at all times. Your home can be broken into not only at night but also during the day.
Plan your actions throughout the day. Schedule phone calls with a friend or family members. This will help them know that you are safe. Stick to your plan because it’s when you deviate from the plan that you encounter danger.
Sometimes running is not an option when you are faced with a dangerous situation. Knowing self-defense tactics will help in this situation. If you know self-defense moves you will have a fighting chance even if men are generally stronger than women. A self-defense training course will help you always be prepared.
If you are accosted by someone in public, scream as loud as you can. Others’ attention will be drawn by your scream. You can alert people of your distress by screaming and it will make the bad man flee. Those who hear you scream can come to your rescue.
One way to stop a bad person in his tracks is by using pepper spray on him. With this, you have time to flee the dangerous situation. Bringing pepper spray at all times is important.
If you are in a crowded area, no one will try to assault you. This is why you should stay in the public eye as much as possible. Walking alone in the dark streets at night puts you in danger. See to it that you are in proximity of other people.
When accosted in the streets, run. Run to a place where there are plenty of people.
