Are you planning a night out with friends in Inverness? While having a great time is important, it’s equally important to stay safe. We’ve partnered with SafeKab and SafeWalk to bring you some tips that can help you have a memorable and safe night out with your friends.
Friends Make a Safe Night Out
Sticking with your friends is always a good idea when you’re out and about. It reduces the chances of becoming a target for anyone with malicious intentions. SafeKab’s new app has a ‘SafeWalk’ feature that allows you to share your walk home with a loved one so they can keep an eye on your journey every step of the way. And if you feel threatened, the app has a panic button that notifies both the local SafeKab office and a loved one that you need help.
Drink Responsibly and Keep an Eye on Your Drinks
Drinking in moderation is key to staying in control of your night out. It reduces the risk of becoming a victim of malicious intentions. Additionally, never leave your drink unattended as it leaves you vulnerable to having your drink spiked.
Don’t Walk Home Alone – Use SafeWalk
If you’re walking home after a night out, always stick to well-lit areas where there are plenty of people around. Plan your route beforehand and stick to well-known areas to avoid any potential danger. With SafeKab’s ‘SafeWalk’ feature, you can walk home with confidence, knowing that a loved one is watching your every step.
SafeWalk allows you to share your walk home with a loved one through GPS tracking so they can keep an eye on your journey every step of the way. We have also developed a ‘SOS button’ that lives right on your phone screen, so should you feel vulnerable you can press the button and notify both the local SafeKab office and a loved one that you need help. With our FREE SafeWalk function, you need never walk home alone ever again!
SafeWalk is completely free to use for anyone who downloads the app. It’s a fantastic tool for students, schools, families, lone walkers, and anyone who might feel vulnerable while travelling alone.
Download the app now and be sure of a SafeWalk and the end of a safe night out.
Leave Your Valuables at Home or Keep them Close
Avoid advertising your valuables while out and about. Keep them hidden in zipped pockets or bags to make yourself less of a target.
Don’t Risk It! Have A Safe Night Out
If you encounter a hostile situation, don’t get involved. Seek help from bouncers or the police and remain with your friends and when it’s time to go home, activate tour SafeWalk feature to walk home safely.
