Safety Rules

Teenagers can be carefree when they are outside the comfort of their home without the guardians of their parent or an adult; this can cause them to be victims of  theft, kidnap, rape e.t.c, To stay safe, here are very  simple precautions you should take note to next time you have to go out alone.

  • Walk with a friend whenever possible.

  • Always be aware of your surroundings and the people around you, whether it is day or night.

  • Use well-lighted, well-traveled routes. Avoid dark, vacant or deserted areas.

  • Walk with confidence. Show that you are aware and in control. Body language works.

  • Trust your instincts. If someone or something makes you feel uneasy, get out or get away.

  • If you feel you are being followed, move to a well-lighted and populated area or building, such as a store or restaurant, and call for assistance.

  • Always keep your cell phone handy so you can make calls if you smell anything fishy.

  • When you are out by car, park in well-lighted areas. Avoid parking in secluded parts of a parking lot. Stick to high traffic areas.

  • When out shopping, don’t carry large bundles or packages. It distracts you from your surroundings and makes you a potential target for a thief.
