With Spring Break either already upon college campuses or rapidly approaching, high school and college students across the nation are preparing for what could either be a week to remember or something they would like to forget.  Music, parties, dancing and  all kinds of bacchanalia are all the excitement, however, safety and security  needs to be a PRIORTY.  Remember there are people who either never came back from Spring Break or had life altering events.

 Here a few safety articles to consider

 

General Safety Tips

  • Trust your instincts. If you feel unsafe at any point during Spring Break go with that feeling
  • Avoid being alone or isolated with a people you don’t know well. Let a trusted friend know where you are and whom you are with.
  • When you have the benefit of numbers, NEVER pair off and go alone .. you may never come back
  • Always carry emergency cash and keep phone numbers for local hero cab companies handy.
  • Form a buddy system with close friends and agree on a secret diversion signal for uncomfortable situations. such as “Boo!!”
  • Don’t accept “party punch from people you don’t know or trust and never leave your “party punch” unattended. If you lose sight of your “witches brew,” get a new one.
  • Stay Aware – Spring break is filled with uncertainty and strangers. Treat it as you    would any unfamiliar atmosphere.
  •  Always be prepared – Keep extra cash on hand, write your hotel phone and address down and if hailing a cab, hand them the address so they know exactly where to take you.
  • Unfortunately Pepper Spray or Stun Guns can’t be taken out of the country, and Pepper Spray can’t go by plane. Have something legal for your personal protection.
