Written by a police officer:

In daylight hours, refresh yourself of these things to do in an emergency situation.

Tip from Tae Kwon Do :The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do!

If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, do not HAND it to him, TOSS it away from you. Chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and he will go for the wallet/purse.

If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won't see you, but everybody else will. This has saved lives.

Women have a tendency to get into their cars and just sit (checking your phone etc. ) DON'T DO THIS! The predator will be watching you. Check your backseat BEFORE you get into the car. Then get in get in the car and LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE.

BE AWARE... look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor and in the back seat.
If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door.
Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars. Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle, and the passenger side.. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY.

Always take the elevator instead of the stairs. Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot.

If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; and even then, it most likely will not be a vital organ. RUN! Preferably in a zig -zag pattern!

As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP!!! It may get you r***d or killed.
Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who always played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked 'for help' into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.

Water scam: If you wake up in the middle of the night to hear all your taps outside running or what you think is a burst pipe. DO NOT GO OUT TO INVESTIGATE! These people turn on all your outside taps full blast so that you will go out to investigate and then attack.

Stay alert, keep safe, and look out for your neighbors!

From this to this in 5 days. Flooded out from water heater blowing out during BB test . Figuring out how to afford mats that were contaminated from water damage. We may be soliciting donations to get the bare floors areas covered with new mats. Cost to replace with the original Dollamur mats is around $3,000. We are looking at less costly alternatives. Thank you to everyone for your help and patience
