Safety Reminders When Strolling Day and Night

With incidents going all around Negros here are some tips to keep you safe.

  • Organize your way, learn where you are going before leaving your house.
  • Choose to travel with a company than walking alone.
  • Walk to bright and urban streets. Avoid shortcuts through dark isolated areas, parking lots, or alleys.
  • Take the safest route to and from schools, workplaces, stores, or your friends’ houses. Know where to go for help if you need it.
  • Avoid exposing your cash or any other enticing targets like cell phones and other gadgets, expensive jewelry and clothing.
  • Carry your backpack or purse close to your body and make sure to keep it closed. If you’re only carrying a wallet put it inside your coat or front pants pocket, not in your back pocket or in your backpack.
  • Have your car or house key in your hand before you reach the door.
  • If you think you’re being followed, change direction or cross the street. If they’re still there, move quickly toward an open store or restaurant or a lighted house. Don’t be afraid to yell for help.
  • Always be alert wherever you are. Call the police to report suspicious persons or suspicious activity.

Always remember that being safe can also be your choice. So keep safe everyone!
