Family Security Plan

Family Security Plan

Whenever a family member leaves the home, they leave the zone of protection that we have created. One way to keep our family reasonable safe is to have a family security plan. When developing a family security plan you must give careful thought to the public routines of each family member and think of ways to keep them safe. One way to accomplish this is to hold a family meeting to discuss the security plan and explore what if scenarios of real life situations. For example, what if we need to use the bank ATM machine? What steps should we take to make the process safer? What if we need to go to the shopping mall? What precautions can we take to be safe in the parking lot? What if someone approaches to rob us while walking to our car? What should we do and how should we react? Where would we go and who would we notify in case of emergency?

Most people have no such family plan nor have they  met as a family to discuss what if scenarios. When or if a criminal assault occurs, the unprepared family will have to rely on natural instinct in response to an incident. What if their natural response is wrong or their reaction inappropriate, under the circumstances? We read about these cases all the time in the newspaper. For example, a man tried to overpower a gunman, only to be shot and killed. We have also become aware of incidents where a child was tricked to get into a car of a total stranger and kidnapped while walking home from school.
