Be alert for predatory signs that usually signal an increased probability of attack.  These signs include excessive or prolonged eye contact; people who approach you deliberately or move with you as you move; predatory movements such as circling, splitting up, or trying to get behind you and people who try and herd you towards a low visibility, isolated ambush point.

Other signs include the use of distractions such as someone asking for directions, or for a light, or physically bumping into you; people who quickly enter your personal space; people who are deliberately following you and people who wear inappropriate clothes such as a heavy jacket in warm weather.

Pay attention to your surroundings (situational awareness).  If something seems unusual, start to increase your defensive posture.  Your behaviors and actions should signal to a predator that you would be a hard target and that you pose such a hazard to them, that they will look elsewhere for an easier target.

Avoid dangerous people and dangerous situations.  If attacked you must be mentally prepared to incapacitate your attacker and win at all costs.  Your mindset and attitude can significantly effect the outcome.

The following is a very important rape prevention tip to be aware of pre and post apocalypse. Never under any circumstances allow an attacker/rapist to isolate you within a vehicle or an abandoned building.  Isolation allows an attacker to proceed with an attack or a rape at their leisure with little chance for their victim to survive.  If an attacker tries to isolate you in an area alone; there is a good chance they may try and eventually kill you when the attack or rape is over. If any type of bindings are produces such as rope, cord, handcuffs, duct tape, wire, zip ties, etc., you must fight for your life and never allow yourself to be bound; as subsequent rape and possibly death will likely be the outcomes.

Tactics are an important element when the SHTF.  Here are some tactics to consider as the need arises.  Move quietly, don’t travel in a straight line, avoid main roads, never go back the same way that you came, never use the same ambush site twice and remember if you can see the enemy the chances are that the enemy can see you too.

Avoid predictable patterns, watch carefully for trip wires and booby traps, do not step on twigs as the sound of a twig breaking will travel a considerable distance.  Avoid using or wearing shiny objects and stay away from locations which leave you vulnearable such as alleyways and dimly lit parking lots.

Pay attention to sounds.  Birds suddenly moving away from a location are an indicator of movement.  Know your enemy and keep your weapons within arms reach.  Your mission will dictate your weapons choices; there is no such thing as one correct weapon for all scenarios.  You must learn to become aggressive enough quickly enough.

Never submit to threats or allow an enemy to isolate you in a vehicle or abandoned building.  If you do get into a vehicle make sure the car door will open from the inside before closing that door, as some unscrupulous folks will disable the inside door handles to prevent them from working.  Never allow yourself to become incapacitated especially if bindings are produced such as rope, cord, duct tape, zip ties, wire or handcuffs.

Minimize your risk profile as most attacks are crimes of opportunity.  Pay attention to your gut instincts; if something feels wrong it probably is wrong.  Remain situationally aware at all times and avoid dangerous areas and dangerous situations whenever possible.

You have the right and the responsibility to defend yourself from a criminal attack.  In any scenario; it is important to be aware of all that is around you as part of your 360 degree security plan.  You need to pay particular attention to anyone or anything which seems out of place.  Trust your instincts, do not ignore them as your first concern will be to stay alive.

You are your own first line of defense.  Based on circumstances; the course of action you choose needs to be carried through without hesitation.  When faced with violence, which cannot be avoided, you must have the will to act with ferocity and severity in order to save your life.

It is irrational in this day and age that a law abiding citizen would not carry some form of a weapon.  To choose not to carry a weapon intentionally renders yourself partially defenseless.  Violence is escalating and many attacks occur in fringe areas such as deserted parking lots, alleyways, public bathrooms, stairwells, ATM kiosks, etc., where no immediate help will be available.

The most reliable and powerful weapon will do you no good if a situation demands immediate, decisive action for your survival and you fail to take action.  While it is best to avoid violence; if you are in a life threatening situation you may need to react violently to save your life.  Never escalate a situation which could turn violent until you consider where it might lead.  Remember you are your own first line of self defense.
