Safety in the home
If you ring the doorbell, do not rush to open. Especially if you're not waiting for the guests. Do not rush to unlock the locks, even if it seems that the stranger standing at the door, it is not dangerous.
For example, the door call intelligent-looking people. Represented employees of the service water inspection, water treatment plant or other credible organizations. They admit: in the scam are not similar.
They demonstrate a variety of devices, ostensibly designed to test water quality. It is said that the water is of poor quality, pour terms. They say that now purify the water using a special filter (new design!) And give everything a try.
After the test "purified" water tenants apartments lie on the floor, unconscious, and scammers are collecting money and valuables. In the best case will only be robbery. At worst - substance added to the water to be too strong or high dose and not all wake up.
There are other stories. For example, people want to open: "We are neighbors from the bottom, you have fill up!", And then burst into the apartment.
1. Consider the guest through the peephole before opening
If the eye is closed - accidentally or deliberately - does not hesitate to speak from behind a closed door in until the peephole released. As long as you do not understand who is at the door, do not open it. And then, making out a guest, is also not necessary.
2. A police officer must show identification
If a person appears to a police officer is required to show a certificate so that you could see it through the peephole. And even making out a certificate, you are not obliged to open, if police do not have a court decision for search and there were no reports that the crime is committed in the apartment. Representatives of any other organizations also can not enter without a warrant to you or your invitation.
3. Keep an eye on the casual visitor, if let him enter
So many apartment scammers operate on the charm. And while one ubaltyvat mistress, others visiting the apartment, prihvatyvaya all that is visible.
Do not let random people in an apartment. And if you succumb to the charm and the guests included - to keep an eye on them, not to leave to bring a glass of water or watch the meter readings.
There is the slightest suspicion that unlock the locks are not worth it? Do not engage in a long conversation with a stranger: tell them that you are busy, and get away from the door. If the intruder continues to plague you, call the emergency services (112).
Safety rules in the street
In the dark on the street need to be careful not to go in the headphones, especially not to listen loud music, do not pass through the poorly lit areas where there are no people who do not walk as far as possible in alone. Going out in the evening or at night, the girls do not wear expensive jewelry and revealing outfits, and the boys - to show off a new smartphone and show how much money is in your wallet.
Seemingly simple, right? And yet we all continue to blithely walk through the dark streets.
1. Do not think that nothing threatens the strong man
This is not true. Even a man of large physique can attack, particularly when it comes to the company of criminals, or simply drunk guys. You can not lose vigilance. Carry a stun gun or other means of self-defense, do not wear headphones, watch what is happening around.
If you stick to the issues, behave calmly and confidently, do not insult and provoke conversation. Remember that the best fight - one that did not happen.
Do not be ashamed to just run away: your heroism no one will appreciate, but can suffer seriously.
2. As soon as it got dark - be especially careful
In late autumn and winter in disadvantaged areas dangerous to walk even at seven or eight o'clock in the evening. When you get home, when it was already dark, be very careful.
Choose illuminated sections of the road, do not cut a way through the dark alleys.
Noticed that someone comes up to you? There was the slightest suspicion that you may be attacked? Call the person who is waiting for you at home, or just a relative or friend. Talk calm and confident voice, as if nothing disturbs you, "I'm just going through the park, I'll be home soon. You can go to meet me in zaydom store. " This method is not always present, but it often helps to flush out the attacker.
3. Even if you know the shortest route, choose a crowded place lighted
If you constantly take shortcuts through dark alleys or vacant lot, it may seem that everything is in order and you are in no danger. Yes - for the time being. It is important to understand that a familiar route does not mean safe route. In a deserted place with a higher risk of encountering drunken company or a robber.
It is better to reduce the chances of such a meeting to a minimum - to choose a safe route, even if it will be longer. If this is not possible, it is desirable at least not to go home alone. Still, we are talking about a situation where one collision can be fatal.
4. Heroism is not unnecessarily
Having learned a couple of tricks in the bag or putting gas canister, one thinks that now he really was safe. He becomes careless, and in some cases even attempting heroics when not to do so.
Keep in mind: if the striker, who only wanted to take her purse, meet unfortunate, but rebuff confident he can get nervous. And instead of a simple robbery to beat the victim.
If you can get away without coming into contact with dangerous people, it is best to do so.
5. Keep an eye on things, leaving the car
Do you think that the car park - a secure place? This is not true. Attackers may attack the driver from the machine. Another option - to come to the open door, grab the bag and run.
To avoid this, do not rush out of the car. First make sure that next to no suspicious people, like the guy who shifts from one foot to the other, or very slowly approaches the car, looking in your direction. Purse, handbag, wallet and documents place so that they can not be easily grasped, or take it with you. Do not leave the door open if you are going to take things out of the trunk, and vice versa.
6. Having bought remedy, be trained to use it and keep ready
A typical story: a girl buys a gas canister, without even trying to understand how it works, and puts it at the bottom of the bag. She thinks that if necessary, she would get it easily and will bring into play. But when attacking everything goes according to another scenario: she just does not have time to get a can, and if it succeeds, in fear can grab it incorrectly and accidentally splashing his face.
It is important to understand that the can not protect you while lying on the bottom of the bag.
Returning home at night, put it in his pocket. You feel the danger - take in hand. And the pre-work-out to use it, to be able to fight back the attacker.
Better not to buy pepper spray or other means of self-defense in general than to buy and learn to use them.
What is important to know when choosing safety equipment:
- Gas cartridge suitable for the protection of the open space (outdoor or indoor large). Gushed, while at a distance of 1-2 meters, and fled. Suitable as a shocker to the shooting cartridge. They shot from afar, and fled.
- If you use the spray indoors or in a crowd, where you can catch the others, the damage would be inflicted not only to those from whom you are defending. In the elevator, the narrow corridor or stairwell to use pepper spray is not necessary, the gas will act on you.
- Indoors or in a crowd is better to use a stun gun. They gave discharge and fled.
After the purchase of protective equipment, carefully read the instructions and be trained to use. Just do not check the shocker on living beings.
Remember, these security tools do not protect you completely. Using spray or stun gun, do not stand watching the result. Quickly run away from the scene. And do not forget to tell the police about the attack: it can save you from the troubles of others.
Safety in public places
In shopping centers, railway stations, cinemas easy to feel safe, because next to a lot of people, there are guards, police officers. But here it is necessary to remain vigilant and avoid common mistakes.
October 8, 2016 17-year-old guy with a, entered in the "New Europe" shopping center in Minsk with an ax and a chainsaw, packed in a bag on the guitar. He pulled out a chainsaw, started it, and attacked the woman. Having finished with one victim, he grabbed an ax and rushed to the other. The result - one person was killed and two others suffered serious injuries.
No one was ready for it. People who saw the armed man did not call security, not run from it. When the attack occurred, someone in a panic rushed to the door, and someone is not seeing the offender, went to the scene to see what had happened.
This is not the first attack in a public place. And most importantly, do not be the last. No matter how safe you represent your city and places frequented. The tragedy could be repeated anywhere.
1. Pay attention to strange behavior
If you see an armed man, especially if he is behaving inappropriately, stay away as far as you can.
To reduce the risks:
- In restaurants and cafes as possible, take the person to the exit.
- Pay attention to the people who surround you.
- Always think of improper, abnormal, the more aggressive or defiant behavior of other people as a threat.
You should alert the excessive nervousness or, on the contrary, determination, mad eyes, an angry expression on his face. Do not do a discount on age: the striker could well be a teenager. If you see a suspicious person, report it immediately to the security guard or the police and do not expect developments, go away.
2. Do not try to calm the aggressive man
One of the worst mistakes made when faced with aggressively tuned armed man - an attempt to talk, convince. You may find that you are able to stop the forward well-chosen words. This is not true. As a rule, such crimes are mentally ill people, with persistent delusional beliefs that break only by professionals with special training - and even then not always.
Do not engage in a dialogue. If an aggressive man turns to you with a question, answer in monosyllables if possible. Do not show any strong emotions: it is certain to be perceived incorrectly and can cause unpredictable reactions.
3. Not an eye for unusual situations
Do not try to get close to the scene. A pair of frames on the phone can cost you dearly. You will learn about all of the news later.
4. Stay far away from the crowds, if you started to panic
When you are surrounded by a lot of people think that you are completely safe. This is not always the case. If there was something wrong and started to panic, if possible, try to stay away from large crowds. Treadmill the crowd is dangerous.
If you still were among the fleeing, do everything possible in order not to fall and not be pressed against the window or wall. In no case do not bend over the fallen thing and do not try to go across the crowd: you simply swept away. If there is an opportunity to go through the service exit or just roll out of the way - use it.
5. Do not check yourself suspicious items
You think you can distinguish dangerous device from accidentally forgotten the bag? This is not true. The bomb can be disguised as anything. If you see a suspicious object left by someone in the building or in transport, in any case, do not do anything with it themselves.
Suspicious object can have a strange odor, or to click on ticking. Other signs - insulating tape, wires sticking out of the antenna, the similarity with the regular ammunition - grenade or mine.
The main symptom: a subject, who is clearly not in place.
Find a representative of the administration or the guard and report the found objects. That does not sound so heroic, but it can keep you out of danger. Bomb-surprises are often set up at the touch of a blast.
Another rule: do not use your mobile phone with him. Get away for a few tens of meters. And do not tell about the results all around: it could trigger a panic.
6. Listen to the warning signals
You know what to do if in the shopping center "Mega" hear the message: "being checked the exact time. Now X hours X minutes "? No, do not compare notes. The correct answer - you need to calmly and without panic go to the exit. Because it is a special message - a warning for the personnel of a possible terrorist attack or a bomb. Similarly, we must act with the message "code 1000 put into effect" - it means the threat of fire. Elimination of the threat: "After the last scan clock is set correctly" and "Action code 1000 discontinued."
Special warning signals - codes, which are to convey information to personnel without disturbing ordinary citizens. Most often, these signals are disguised as innocent messages. So, the British railway use the phrase "Inspector Sands, go to the control room" to alert the emergency.
If you hear a strange message on the loudspeaker, see how security officers are beginning to gather in groups or quickly somewhere to go, do not try to find out what happens. Just go away.
