Safety Planning

Know the shelter's 24 hour telephone numbers:      
  • Don’t get trapped in a room.  Plan an escape route.
  • Take your children with you.
  • Know a safe place to escape to
  • Have an extra car key and have cash hidden for emergencies
  • Gather important papers and phone numbers.  Store them with a friend or neighbor.
  • Tell a neighbor about the violent behavior.  Arrange a signal so police can be called if needed.
  • If all else fails and you cannot escape, pretend to faint.  It MAY stop the attack.
