Safety Planning and Resources: Domestic Abuse Prevention Project

Call 911 if you are in immediate danger

Be prepared for your safety:

  • Find a safe place to go that’s unknown to the batterer
  • Write down and carry with you the phone numbers for emergency help (police, shelters)
  • Tell someone you trust what is happening
  • Trust your instincts – if you feel you are in danger, get out
  • Hide things you’ll need if you leave – important documents, extra money, keys, etc.
  • Plan with your children what to do in case of a violent incident
  • Make an emergency safety plan with a friend or relative you can count on.
