SITUATIONAL AWARENESS

Being situationally aware is the first step in self-defence. It’s your opportunity to identify what’s wrong, get to safety or get help.

Some tips to be situationally aware:

  • Know your surroundings

  • Don’t be distracted e.g. Looking down at mobile phones and not paying attention to your surroundings

  • Walk in public areas and avoid quiet areas

  • Lock your car doors

  • Consider home security

  • Be confident

  • Know your Emergency numbers

REACTION TIME

Being situationally away enables you to react quickly. Distancing yourself from any potential attackers will create a greater reaction time for you to get to safety.

 

Here are a few tips for you to create a greater reaction time:

  • Be alert to your surroundings so you can react at the first available opportunity

  • Be aware of people’s intent

  • Pay attention to exit points wherever you are

  • Start moving away as soon as you feel something isn’t right

  • Tell someone and ask for help

IT’LL NEVER HAPPEN TO ME

Media illustrates the types of crime happening in our neighborhoods. However, one thing that we sometimes neglect is that could be happening to us. Remember, if it can happen to someone else, it can happen to anyone, including ourselves.

REMEMBER, AWARENESS IS KEY!
