Be safe and be alert

Whether you live in the bustling city, getting some retail therapy at a big shopping centre or using public transport, being alert is crucial for safeguarding yourself and your belongings.

 

Your safety is important to us, and while we start to relax when we’re on our way home after a long day at work, awareness matters more than you think.

Avoid distractions

In today’s hyper-connected world, it’s all too easy to get absorbed in our smartphones, whether we’re scrolling through social media, responding to messages, or listening to music. While technology enhances our lives, it can also pose a distraction, especially when we’re out and about. When walking to and from your apartment or using common areas like the lobby or elevator, resist the urge to bury your face in your phone.

Be aware of your surroundings

Being aware of your surroundings is more than just noticing the sights and sounds around you – pay attention who’s nearby and trust your instincts if something feels off. By staying vigilant, you not only protect yourself but also contribute to a safer community for your fellow tenants and neighbours.

Keep your belongings secure

It’s easy to become complacent, especially when we’re in familiar surroundings like our apartments or around our neighbourhoods. Whether you’re at the gym, socialising with friends or walking to the office, keep your belongings close and never leave it out of sight.

Car care

If you own a car, always ensure its locked and be aware of car jamming – so double check that the doors are locked. Do not leave any valuables in plain sight – rather place items like laptops, bags, etc. in the boot of the car to minimise the risk of theft.

Taking care of the little ones

Supervision is key, especially when it comes to children’s safety. Don’t let them wonder alone and communicate why it’s important to always ask permission before going anywhere. Teach your children from a young age to keep apartment doors locked. When in public places, remind them about the importance of staying close to you. Soon there will be less accidents and children will make safer choices.

By being more aware we not only make our buildings safe but also our communities. The next time you step or drive out of the apartment building, keep your eyes and ears open. For those with little ones – don’t forget to prioritise their safety too.
