Use common sense and be street smart. Just a few ways you can put safety first include:
Always wear your seatbelt. Wear a helmet when participating in sports, like biking or skiing.
Use smoke detectors in your home.
Do not go for a run, walk, or jog alone at night. Most attacks happen to people who are alone. Reduce your risk by bringing a friend.
Use medicines wisely. Follow directions and ask your doctor or pharmacist about side effects and drug interactions.
Keep your home well lit. Remove items (like loose wires, cords, throw rugs) that could cause you to fall.
