  • For emergency assistance of any kind, dial 911 from any phone.
  • When traveling in any new area, always be alert and trust your instincts. Upon arrival, get your bearings, and note locations of well-traveled, well-lit areas where you could obtain assistance if necessary. Use area maps and travel main roads.
  • Carry a minimal amount of cash. Use travelers checks and credit cards whenever possible. Record their identification numbers, and keep that record in a separate, safe place. Area banks do not offer foreign currency exchange unless you have an account with them. Travelers checks are widely accepted.
  • Always carry purses, wallets, hotel keys and car keys securely. Do not leave purses on chairs, under tables or on bathroom hooks.
  • Be observant, and always report any suspicious activity to Law Enforcement, Security Officers, or Hotel and Business Managers.
  • Always lock your car, whether parked or traveling. When parked, keep valuables out of sight. At night, park in well-lit areas.
  • Keep hotel room windows and doors locked. Know who is at the door before you open it. Do not invite strangers to your room.
  • Keep extra cash and valuables locked in a safe place such as a hotel safe deposit box or a room safe.
  • Upon checking into a hotel or motel, locate fire exits, elevators, and the nearest phone. Plan the best way to exit in case of any emergency.
  • Make sure children know the name and address of where you are staying. Remind children of places they can go to get help should they become separated from you.
  • Pedestrian traffic should cross roadways at intersections. Wait for pedestrian walk lights before crossing.
  • Florida law requires safety belts for all front seat passengers, regardless of age. Children under the age of 3 are required to be in a safety car seat. Children ages 4-5 must either be in a safety seat or wear a seat belt.
  • In the unlikely event you are confronted by an assailant, do not resist demands for your valuables.
