Situational Awareness

Each year many expats attend this event and usually walk away with great gifts and a pleasurable experience.  On the flip side, these events are a good time to review practical personal security tips.    

3-Effective Tips to Stay Aware

1.  Setup:  Avoid parking near isolated areas and familiarize yourself with your surroundings.

2.  Focus:  It’s OK to explore but have a sense of purpose.

3.  Empower:  Remember most crimes in Tunisia are “Crimes of Opportunity“…don’t present the opportunity.  Walking while talking on your cell phone=opportunity, Leaving your hand bag unattended=opportunity, taking out large amounts of cash to pay for something=opportunity.

Feedback

Please feel free to share you’re experience if you attend this event.  Perhaps other expats will benefit from your feedback & tips.
