Personal Safety. It is always best to be prepared and stay one step ahead of the game. The best thing you can do if running errands or going to work is to carry a personal alarm or pepper spray. Be aware of your surroundings especially when walking out of a building. Be sure not to walk close to any bushes. Attackers love to hide in the bushes and wait for the perfect time to attack. If someone is following you do not proceed to your car. Cross the street and proceed to the nearest populated location where you can call for help. If someone attempts to grab you, scream for help at the top of your lungs or use your personal alarm. After all, attackers don't like attention. Don't take short cuts home or otherwise through parts of town you are not familiar with or dark alleys. Women's Self Defense, stay safe.
