Staying Safe During Spring Break

Tips to help you have a safe and wonderful spring break

Spring break is a chance for students to get away and have a break from school. Going on vacation is an ideal spring break whether it is in-state, out-of-state, or out of the country. Below are tips that anyone can use to have a safe spring break vacation:

  1. Stay on the resort:  Staying on the resort that you have reservations for is very important because of the possible dangers outside of the resort. Most likely, you are not familiar with the area since you are vacation. Your best bet is to stay on the resort where the level of safety is high.
  2. Strangers: When talking to strangers, you should be cautious. You should be especially cautious when you are out of town because tourists are more likely to be preyed on rather than someone who is familiar with the town they are in.
  3. Stay together: Staying together while you are out of town is crucial to your safety. Staying together with your group ensures that someone is looking out for you and you are looking out for someone else. It is also less likely for someone to prey on you if you are in a group.
  4. Driving: If you are driving to your spring break destination, it is important to make sure that the driver has a valid driver’s license and proof of insurance.
  5. Sun: If you plan on going to the beach during spring break, protecting your skin is a part of spring break safety too. Make sure to apply sunscreen and continue to reapply.
