Safety Tips

  • Have a plan before the crisis.  Most places are closed, know what public places are open in your area. Use a work reason or essential errand (ex. grocery shopping or picking up prescriptions) to leave the home, if needed.

  • Pay attention to your abuser’s daily routine.

  • Be aware of your surroundings.  If an argument begins to escalate while at home, try to move into the bedroom or living room. 

  • Avoid wearing items around neck that can potentially be used to strangle you.

  • Check – in daily with a neighbor or family member that you trust.  Develop a code word or signal when you need help.

  • Gather essential items that you may need if you must leave your home quickly. (ex. Carry your ID., extra set of keys & any Credit Cards)

  • Memorize the Wayne Uplift Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault phone number 919-736-1313.
