What should I do to plan for my safety?
Tips for ensuring your safety include:
  • Avoid events where you know the abuser will be
  • Change your patterns; hours you come and go, grocery store, routes to day care or school. Be ready to get away quickly if necessary.
  • Get caller ID and block your ID when you make a call (push *67 before you dial)
  • Limit access to personal information; get a post office box, change your phone number, don’t give out your social security number easily
