When you love someone, their safety is important to you - and that's what our #ShowYouCare series is all about. In order to help share the love, we compiled a list of the best safety tips our readers heard from someone who cares about them.
"Always be aware of my surroundings."
"My siblings and I were told to walk home together and to never leave with other adults who claimed they were there to take us to practice, the doctor, etc. - even if we knew this person."
"Always use the buddy system at night."
"Be aware of your surroundings and trust your instinct about situations that make you feel uneasy."
"Always have two winter coats, a hat and a pair of gloves in your trunk."
"Don't take your safety for granted. Just because you think you live in a safe neighborhood, or you're on a college campus, that doesn't mean you are actually safe. Don't get too comfortable."
"Never talk to strangers. Look both ways before crossing the street. Good-looking / well-dressed people can be bad, too..."
"Always be aware of your surroundings - know where you are and what's going on around you. The more alert you are, the less likely you are to be a target!"
"Don't put or store anything on the stairs. It's a cause of falls."
"Don't leave lit candles unattended... it's a major cause of hour fires. (We personally experienced this at a Christmas party. Candles on a table with greeting cards... candles burned down and set the cards on fire! Luckily, someone caught it before it spread.)"
Pass this list of helpful safety tips along to someone you love - it's the perfect way to #ShowYouCare.
