How To Stay Safe During The Yuletide Season by bamasite(m): 7:35pm On Dec 18, 2012
Waoo!!!!!!

It's that time of the year again when celebration is in the air. It 's the season of love ans gifts...but wait...It is also that time of the year when criminal elements are very active. Of course, they too want to celebrate and 'flex' too.

Success secrets is all about success secrets in anything you can think of and that is why we here to present to you SECURITY ADVISORY FOR THE YULETIDE SEASON: HOW TO STAY SAFE!!!. Read, learn, apply and enjoy the season....Seasons greetings Nigeria!!!
Please be guided by the following tips:



I. Personal Security



- Keep a low profile, blend in and be alert of developments in your environment

- Avoid known crime prone areas/hot spots in your home towns/states

- Avoid routine pattern of movements and late night outings

- Avoid undue exposure, inclusive of your family members



II. Financial Transactions



- Keep all information concerning financial transactions strictly confidential – don’t discuss in the open

- Avoid carrying large sums in cash, do not carry black polythene or brown envelopes, they may attract criminals.

- Avoid physical transactions that require large sums in cash - use cheques and electronic money transfers

- Use ATMs only in safe and well lit places



III. Travel Security



- Always pre-plan your journey and ensure the vehicle is in good working condition

- Discuss travel details only with immediate family members

- Avoid night driving, and make less use of your high value cars that easily mark you out as a potential target

- Stick to major routes and avoid lonely routes with bad roads and poor visibility

- Don’t give ride to strangers, including persons dressed in uniforms, as they may be criminals in disguise

- Beware of techniques used by criminals to force unsuspecting victims to stop


It is also established that motorists are most vulnerable when:

- Waiting for the gates to be opened for them at residences
- Driving through a terribly bad spot that requires slowing down completely with little chance of escape or
when parked on a spot along less-busy-roads without alighting from the car



IV. Social Outings

- Always let close family members be aware of your movements
- Avoid late outings unless it is absolutely necessary (even then ensure you are accompanied)
- Avoid crowded places
- Always take your mobile phone with you, in the event you need to make emergency calls




However, in the likely event of an attack or incident, please remember the following:

- The general rule is "NEVER" attempt to run
- DO NOT resist or panic, just stay calm and cooperate
- AVOID eye-to-eye contact with the assailants, but respond to instructions and questions calmly.
- Don't make sudden movements without first seeking their permission - e.g. unfastening your seat belt as they may
misconstrue your intention
- Implore them not to use their weapons as you will cooperate fully
- Focus your energy on survival, maintaining self respect and dignity
- Inform them if you have any medical condition
- Request to speak with your relatives, close associates, and give them the facts unemotionally
- Don't attempt to call the Police when it is not safe to do so
- Report to the nearest police station and company security control room when it is safe to do so.

In addition to the TRAVEL SECURITY TIPS, Always lock the four doors once you're in the vehicle. (Especially when you're in a crowded Traffic Jam). If possible, wind up if you got your AC working fine.)

Safe journey y'all, and Merry Xmas in Advance.

Avoid boko haram Territory. Visit orphanage homes. Avoid drinking with strangers and in the public. Don't touch another man's wife. Don't sex without condom. Avoid village and cheap girls they are dangerous. Don't go visiting ur Ex-. Don't travel by air if u ever spoke evil against pastors with private jets in this mixed multitude forum, the plane might crash and u die. Don't visit babalawo and witchdoctors. Settle every dispute at the family level and FORGIVE every Nigerian include president Jonathan and his annoying wife. Visit ur pastor for prayers and spiritual blessings before embarking on ur journey. Expect another surprise from president Jonathan on January 1st.

Thanks for the info but were you on police uniform before.

- If you have a Jeep, always send somebody to check round the compound before you drive out
- Use your mirror anytime you are making a U-turn
- Always lock your gate/door immediately you enter

But more importantly, be prepared for any surprise package from GEJ.
Fill your tank on 31st Dec, not minding the cost.

It's Festive Season, "Ember Months" Accidents take seconds to happen but the suffering last a life timesad. HELMETS and CONDOMS should be worn on appropriate HEADSwink during the respective RIDES, especially on VEHICLES that don't belong to you.

Also if you are driving long distance, make sure your car (including tyres) is road-safe to avoid making emergency stops in the middle of nowhere.

Stay safe people
