With summer approaching, we are all spending more time going out and about. ALWAYS be aware of what is in your environment no matter where you are. The first thing you should do when you are visiting anyplace is to consciously make yourself aware of your surroundings and mentally notice any and all exits so that you know how to get out. Recognize that there may be people who are possible threats. Be aware of people who look or act differently than the rest or who want to get to close to you. ‘People watching’ is not only just a past time but also a tool that can be used as a survival skill, keeping your situational awareness where it needs to be. Be safe.
