4 Safety Tips for Young Women

No matter who you are, you always want to Think Protection and how to keep yourself safe.  There are, however, some special precautions young women should consider to keep themselves safe at all times.

Driving Safety

Keep a charged cell phone with you at all times while driving.  No matter what the emergency, a cell phone can be your line to safety and something you always want with you.  Keep all vehicle doors locked, and never let your gas gauge run under half full.  You want to avoid running out of gas, or even having to refuel in a remote gas station at night.  Always park in a well-lit, populated area and check the back seat before entering your vehicle.  Also, never, under any circumstances, should you pick up a hitchhiker.

Safety with Friends

When hanging out with friends, always use a buddy system wherever you go.  If you are walking down the street or hanging out at your favourite night spot, always make sure you have at least one friend with you.  Whether you`re at a bar or a café, never leave your drink unattended or with a stranger.  Either finish your drink or leave it with a friend you can trust who will keep it in their hands.

Safety Walking

If walking with a friend is not an option, ensure you are always walking in a well-lit, well-populated area while alone.  Keep an object such as a whistle with you to make a lot of noise such as a whistle if you feel like you are in any danger.  Never, ever enter a stranger’s car or accept a ride from someone you don’t know well and make sure you have friends or family that know where you are.

Home Safety

Your home is your castle, and whether living alone or with friends, you have to keep it fully protected.  Get strong deadbolt locks for all of the doors, and keep them locked at all times, even while you are at home.  If you don’t have a home alarm system, get one immediately.  They can protect you from home invasions and are statistically shown to prevent thieves from choosing your home.  Even if you are renting or only living somewhere temporarily, you can get a home security system for a low monthly fee and no contract! Protect your possessions, your home and protect yourself!

How Can Newlyweds Protect Themselves?

Congratulations! You took the plunge and got married!

Marriage can be one of the most rewarding events in your life, and a time for great celebration. You are building a life together with a partner and the future is incredibly bright! What could possibly bring this feeling down? The state of euphoria known as the honeymoon phase brings a lot of highs, but that feeling won’t protect you from possible danger, so you have to plan to keep you, your partner and your future safe.  Here are some tips for Newlyweds:

– When planning your honeymoon, ensure that you prepare everything well in advance.  Pick a resort with good reviews in an area that is reputable.  Avoid potentially dangerous situations such as taking cabs alone or late nights on the beach.  Make sure your friends and family know where you are staying and have an emergency contact number you can be reached at, and make sure you know where the nearest embassy is.  Finally, make sure your passport is up to date and keep it locked up in your hotel room’s safe.- Get insurance for your home before you leave.  You are building a life together, so protect your assets from something catastrophic.  If anything happens while you are away, you want to be protected financially.

– Practice general safety online.  You will feel tempted to post a countdown to your honeymoon on Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus so that all of your friends and family know how excited you are, but it’s never wise to advertise that your home will be unprotected for an extended period of time.  Do you really know every person on your friends list?  Are your privacy settings enough to stop strangers from looking at your profile?  Wait until you are home to post how great the trip was and that picture of you swimming with dolphins.

-You have your trip booked, your online privacy protected and insurance to protect you in case of the worst.  What else will you need?  Undoubtedly, every newlywed needs to invest in a home security system.  You need to Think Protection.  The benefits of protecting your home with Think Protection are numerous.  The insurance plan you just got?  You should get a big discount on it by having a home alarm.  The person who checked out Facebook and wanted to check out your home?  They will be frightened off by our live two-way voice alarm system.  And you will feel tremendous peace of mind knowing you will come back to a safe and secure home.

Newlyweds need to protect their future lives together and you need protection from a real security company.  Rogers, AT&T, Protect America, Frontpoint, Comcast Xfinity and other cable providers are not truly focused on home protection.  Other providers such as ADT and Vivint are expensive and as a newlywed, every dollar counts.

Think price, think protection, think value when choosing your home security company!

Here’s to a great future!
