Tammy Taser’s Safety Tips for Public Places

As women, it is so important that we take our safety seriously! Here are some of the tips that I share with my friends when they come to me for advice on how to best stay safe—they know I don’t play around when it comes to my safety!

  • Listen to your instincts! Even if you don’t know why something is bothering you, if the feeling won’t go away it’s probably for a reason.
  • Pay attention to everything that goes on around you, from things that seem out of place to people.
  • When you walk down the sidewalk, make sure you’re facing oncoming traffic so that you can see what’s coming your way.
  • Keep your purse close to your body. Not only does it prevent the embarrassing issue of you smashing other people with your oversized bag, but it’ll make you a less likely candidate to have your bag snatched.
  • Always appear confident and calm, even if you’re panicking inside. Predators tend to pray on those who seem hopeless and easy to overcome.
  • Always let someone know where you’re going and when you should be back. Even if you live alone, let a family member or friend know if you’re making an unexpected or out-of-the-ordinary trip.
  • If you think you’re being followed, seek out a place full of people and find either a security guard or police officer. You can always call the police on your cell if things seem urgently dangerous.
  • If you feel as though a group of people are closing in on you, make sure they aren’t able to surround you. Muggings often take on this type of pack-like appearance before they happen.
  • Think carefully about how you should react in different threatening circumstances.
  • Ask yourself how you will defend yourself if you need to. Obviously my first thought is my TASER, but if for some reason I can’t use it, I have a Plan B.
  • When faced with an attacker, never show that you’re scared. In some circumstances showing that you’re angry may throw the attacker off. Most attackers want easy victims.
  • Yell, “Fire!” if you need to draw attention to yourself. People are much more likely to respond to “Fire!” than anything else and it can be screamed very quickly.
  • If you feel someone following you or closing in on you, try calling out a random name and look around as though you’re looking for someone. Your potential attacker will probably be less likely to go after you if he/she thinks you’re not alone.
  • If your attacker has a weapon, be very careful in how you deal with them. Thankfully if I TASER my attacker he won’t be able to use his weapon. Just another reason my TASER is my self-defense weapon of choice!
  • Regardless of the type of self-defense weapons you prefer, Mace, pepper spray, stun gun or TASER, make sure you keep something on you at all times!
