Safety Advice for Ladies Who Live Alone

Safety Advice for Ladies Who Live Alone

 

For some reasons, living alone and in solitary may be great fun with being able to do what you want, how you want, and when you want, without any interference being on top of the list. This obviously is good but it comes with its disadvantages, with safety being of major concern. With safety in mind, there are basic rules and guidelines that a lady living alone can follow in other to minimize the risk of becoming a victim.

 

Know Your Surroundings:

It is very easy to move into a home and get busy with your life that you forget this primary safety tip. This should be the first thing you do when you move into a new home or visit a new environment. Take out time and study your surroundings. Locate all the routes leading to your house, become familiar with your neighbors, take note of patterns, cars, and details. It is also a nice idea to know what places tend to the deserted by certain hours and possible places for someone to hide.

Lock Your Doors:

 

Your doors should always be locked, day and night. Before someone gains access into your home, you must have identified the person. And if the individual is a burglar, you would have become alert before they come in. In the cases where a burglar shatters your glass door or grinds through your metal door a home alarm system can protect you.

Set Up a Home Alarm System:

As opposed to a dog, a home alarm system can help you recognize whether someone has broken into your house or not. If the former is the case, you will be alerted and have police dispatched to your home to potentially catch the burglar before they leave.  A good alarm system can become a life saver; hence it is expedient to contact a reputable security company if you choose to follow this option – we highly recommend Concho Security and think they are awesome (we may be biased).

Get a Safety Buddy:

This is a great idea. Living alone does not mean living in isolation. You may get sick or be critically ill. At this point, a safety buddy will come in handy. As a bonus, always invite a safety buddy if you need to have someone come fix something in your house; furniture, plumbing, etc.

Social Media

Social Media is fun, but using it to tell potential burglars you are home alone could end badly.

Manage Your Social Presence:

Be discerning. While checking in on Facebook everywhere you go may appear to be fun, it gives you away in terms of your whereabouts. An example is “#allalone windows open, who is up for some fun”. Also announcing trips and journey is an obvious open invitation to thieves who know where you live.

Manage Your Private Life:

Over the years, people have become more conscious to what they put online. While this is a very nice idea, looking out for our offline details is a bonus safety act. Never put your full name on your mail box. It is advisable you use your surname and initials. This leaves your gender a secret. Do not put your phone number on personal checks and shred all personal documents before putting them in the trash can.

Get a Weapon:

This doesn’t mean a gun. Getting a baseball bat if you have the heart isn’t a bad idea. Most commonly is pepper spray and you can incapacitate an attacker without physical interaction with him/her.
