  •     Know what sets the abuser off-be aware of signs or clues that could trigger a reaction.
  •     Have a code word with family and friends that lets them know if you contact them using this word they should immediately contact the police.
  •     Always be prepared to leave-make sure you have a bag packed, cash, important phone numbers, medications, and children’s things packed and hidden where you can grab in a moment’s notice.
  •     Keep your cell phone charged at all times
  •     Be careful on the computer with instant messages, chats, emails, anything that can be perceived as a threat to the abuser or set off the abuser.
  •     Memorize emergency phone numbers and shelter locations so you don’t need to search for them if you are in a hurry.
  •     Arrange a safe place to stay-make sure you have a place to go if you leave and go immediately there.
  •     Take a self defense class they are often held at local colleges or places at a very low cost.
