A younger person’s college years should be the best of their life. For most they are, but unfortunately for some who are unprepared their school days could be traumatic. If you are a young person preparing to go off to college, or the parent of one, please consider the old adage "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."

There are so many simple things you can do to be safer when away at school. They all have to do with common sense and awareness of your surroundings.

Be aware of your surroundings

Be aware of your surroundings at all times. When you are out in campus or in the community put your phone and ear buds away. Keep your head up and, walk at a determined pace and keep your eyes scanning to know who and what is around you.

Even if you are familiar with an area because you use it all the time during the day do not use it at night, and especially if alone.

Safety in numbers

That brings us to the next point. There is safety in numbers. Don’t walk alone when you can go with a friend or friends. Even if you have to wait a few minutes extra to be with friends please do so.

Alcohol

While there is certainly nothing like the freedom of being on your own away from home and being able to perhaps partake in alcohol please realize what happens when intoxicated. Your body has a slower reaction time, you lose your inhibitions and your ability to make good decisions is impaired. The good looking guy from your English class that keeps giving you drinks may be waiting for you to lose your inhibitions. This is something you may regret in the morning.

Personal Safety Devices

Pepper spray can be a very effective tool in a potentially dangerous situation. It is an inflammatory agent, which causes the eyes to immediately close, and leads to difficulty breathing, a runny nose, and coughing. The best thing about pepper spray is that it’s easy to use and has an immediate impact upon an aggressor. It can provide you with the thing that you really need in a dangerous situation, the opportunity to free yourself from the threat, and get to safety and get help. Check out our huge line of pepper sprays in this site.

A personal alarm, is another very useful tool in a potential assault or rape situation. These devices are small and not cumbersome to carry with you. They often can be used as a key chain or can be easily tucked away in a purse or bag. The purpose of a personal alarm is to alert others and bring them to your aid. It also has the potential to frighten away an assailant in fear of getting apprehended. It is very loud.

Door stop alarm

The previously discussed items are ones that you can, and should, carry with you wherever you go, but what about the security of your living quarters. One of the potential down sides of campus life is dormitory or apartment style housing. Lots of people are coming and going, at all hours, in very close proximity to your living space. A door stop alarm is an inexpensive, yet effective, item that can provide you with some security in your dorm room or apartment. It is an entry alarm that can block a door from being opened., with an alarm will sound alerting you to potential danger if anyone tries to open the door.

Don’t forget your valuables. Theft is one of the most common crime committed on college campuses. A diversion safe, is a safe that resembles a common everyday item, such as a book, a soda can, or household cleaners. It is a great place to hide your valuables. It looks just like the real thing. Remember, the petty thief wants to get the valuables and get out quickly without getting caught. He, or she, usually doesn't have time to look beyond the obvious places. A diversion safe can keep your valuables and keepsakes out of the hands of thieves. See our large selection in our Home Protection category.

Drink Guard

It is unfortunate to even have to talk about date rape but this is a very common issue and is the situation for a large number of sexual assaults. The Drink Guard is a date rape drug detector kit. Simply put a drop of your drink on the supplied card and in seconds you will know if there is a drug in your drink.

A little preparedness can go a long way toward making a young person’s college experience a happy one. Know your risks and prepare for them, use some caution and foresight in determining your associations and activities, and use good common sense.

Here at Safety and Security Solutions we believe everyone has the right to live safely and pursue their goals and dreams. Having the right attitude and right products will allow you to be safe and secure in all you do.
