Everyday survival awareness is something that eveyone should pay particular attention to as they go about their daily routines. Your life can be altered or ended tragically when errors you make combined with proximity to a thug result in severe personal consequences. You do lock your doors in your car when your driving right; if not do it now. You do lock your doors and windows when you leave the house or go to sleep; if not do it now. You do avoid going to ATM’s alone at night in less than ideal areas; if you don’t then start avoiding those ATM’s today.
Be aware of your surroundings. I can’t stress this enough. Take precautions before you become a crime statistic; not afterwards. Criminals do not share your moral values, they are not your friends or your neighbors and will see you only as an obstacle to getting what they want. If you get that gut feeling that something is wrong pay attention to it; as your initial gut reactions are usually correct.
Always carry a cell phone and keep it fully charged. If you have your pistol permit start carrying your pistol concealed after thoroughly training and familiarizing yourself with every aspect of its operation. A gun locked in a safe at home does you no good if you are attacked and need it. For those who do not have a pistol permit carry pepper spray or a quality folding knife with you at all times.
Proper precautions can help you avoid and if necessary deal with potential life altering or ending situations. Don’t become a victim.
