Free Safety Tips - Tips for Women Who Live Alone

February 17, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 151

Are you looking for free safety tips? You're in luck because you stumbled upon this article. This article will specifically provide tips for women who live alone. This is quite timely considering the fact that there are a lot of women living alone. Just in the US alone last 2010, there were 59,165,000 single women living across the US and roughly 17,427,000 of them are living alone. You can now see why there are a lot of women being victimized by robbers, rapists, and other criminals.

If you're a woman and you're living alone, here are some free safety tips for you:

1. Get someone to live with you.

Get a boyfriend or get married. You will drastically lower the chances of you getting victimized in your own home if there's a man in the house. If there's no one special yet, get someone to split the rent with you.

2. Get a dog.

Having a dog is like having a security alarm system. While getting a security alarm system is a good idea, you may not have a budget for it. Head over to the pound and adopt a dog. You can also get a security camera to complement your dog. If you don't have a budget for a security camera, a dog can work as well.

3. Secure all entry points.

Secure your doors. This means adding more locks. It's also a good idea to add locks from the inside. In addition, install a peephole so you don't have to unlock the door just to see who's knocking on the door. While you're at it, make sure to secure the windows as well. Being on the 4th floor of an apartment complex is not reason enough for you to feel secure that no one's going to climb in your window.

4. Give the impression that you don't live alone.

There's a gadget that you can buy that can distort your voice. If your phone rings and you're not expecting any call, turn it on and make it sound like you're a guy who lives in the same house. A lot of criminals call in advance to gauge if everything's clear. If that's not an option right now, make sure to invite friends over regularly.

5. Learn self-defense.

Here's one of the best free safety tips. Learn how to defend yourself! Did you know that there are a lot of things inside your home that you can use as self-defense weapons?

With these free safety tips, you can drastically reduce the chances of you falling victim to a crime.
