Security And Safety Emergencies
Our team continues to compile a list of resources to use in the case of emergency. General guidance is to make sure a report gets on file with local law enforcement. If things escalate to legal charges, having a paper trail and records is critical for the law to work in your favor.
In tandem, if your physical safety is at risk, find a safe place to stay that isn’t easily traceable back to you. If there’s a friend of a friend, an aunt or uncle out of state, or a hotel you can book, being physically safe puts you in a better mental state to take other measures.
