Reduce your risk of being a victim: the personal safety of Findlay Creek residents is our concern

by FCCA | Comments Off

safetyfirstWhile many crimes don’t discriminate between the sexes, most will agree that women are particularly vulnerable. Be vigilant for your personal safety with good safety practices. Prevention helps keep you safe: Be aware of your surroundings, trust your instincts, plan your travel routes, lower the volume to hear your surroundings, avoid dimly lit and/or secluded areas.
If you feel threatened: Be cautious, make noise to attract attention, note points of identification or features.
Report suspicious incidents/persons to police immediately.

If you would be interested in attending a ‘crime prevention for women’ session, please email president@FindlayCreek.ca. If there is enough interest, we will coordinate make it happen.
