When it comes to the holidays, it’s all about having fun and any thoughts about your personal safety tend to fly out the window. We have put together some handy personal safety tips that women should keep in mind this festive season.
If you are going away for a few days or weeks, make sure that your house is secure. Alarm systems provide added security – just ask any installer of alarm systems Centurion in South Africa where the number of house break-ins is quite high. An alarm system will alert your neighbours and the security company if something is amiss.
Personal safety devices are good objects to carry if you have to travel alone. If you are attacked you can activate the device and it will emit a loud noise and alert passersby to your distress. Having basic training in personal safety can make all the difference when it comes to your life.
Keep in mind that there is no substitute for awareness when it comes to personal safety. You can have all of the personal safety equipment in the world, but if you don’t keep an eye on what is happening around you then you won’t be able to use any of it.
Devise a personal safety plan whether it is self-defence training or travelling in pairs, and ensure that your holiday is full of fun not fear. View the clip below for a couple of personal safety basics.
