​At home or away, staying alert can save the day!

  • If you are driving, make sure your vehicle has been properly serviced and is in good condition for the journey.
  • Try to have specific directions and routes to your destination.
  • If you get lost, call the local police for directions or help.
  • Always keep your vehicle doors and windows locked.
  • At stop lights and other traffic delays, leave enough space in front of your vehicle so that you have an escape option in case of an emergency.
  • Let someone know the route you intend to travel and your itinerary. This will help authorities in finding you if there is a need to do so.
  • Plan your trip carefully and allow for factors such as weather, fatigue, facilities for lodging, food and fuel.
  • Be sure you have sufficient finances, either cash, travelers checks or credit cards.
  • Ask the hotel or motel staff about their security​ measures so you know what to expect.
  • Use the hotel safe to store your valuables during your stay.
  • Staying alert to safety may make your vacation much more pleasant and enjoyable. Being a victim of a crime is no fun.
