Got any fun plans tonight? If so, we hope your plans involve the indoors because not only is it Friday the 13th, but weather.com reports, there will be a FULL MOON!
If you don’t consider yourself to be a superstitious individual, you’re probably not worried. On any given day, you probably ignore tips like, “Don’t walk under a ladder,” “Don’t let a black cat cross your path,” or “Don’t break that mirror!”
But the choice is yours! If you’re brave enough to face the most known day of bad luck while warding off the werewolves and zombies that are hopping out of the forest, allow SABRE to share some helpful safety tips. It’s the least we can do!
Be a hard target, not a soft target!
A hard target is someone who is not on their cellphone, someone who is walking with confidence, or with a buddy, and someone who is aware and engaged with their surroundings.
If someone tries approaching you, get your Elbows UPP!
That stands for universal physical protection, and it makes it harder for an attacker to get a hold of you.
Carry SABRE Pepper sprays or personal alarms!
Make sure to shoot the product straight across the attacker’s eyes if you’re going to use it, that’s the most effective way. If pepper spray is not for you, try our personal alarms – when you pull the keychain, the noise, louder than a rock concert speaker, will get the attention of those around you.
If you would like to learn more safety tips or how to discourage potential threats every day, not just the ones carrying superstition, take one of SABRE’s self defense classes at SABRE Personal Safety Academy!
