Lipscomb Safety offers five tips for a safe spring break

Whether it’s going to Key West, FL or serving on a mission trip overseas, spring break is a time college students use to relax, kick back and enjoy the view. However, this is also the time of the year swindlers and crooks come out and prey on potential and unsuspecting victims. To ensure your spring break experience is as safe as possible, Lipscomb Security and Safety’s Patrick Cameron offers a few helpful tips.

1.)  Be aware of your surroundings.

“You want to make sure that you’re alert. You very much want to be aware of what’s going on around you,” Cameron said.

2.)  Travel together

“You want to travel in a group. Always take at least a partner wherever you go,” Cameron said.

3.)  Keep valuables hidden

“You don’t want to flash a lot of valuables. Make sure you keep your money in your purse and safe. You want to limit your exposure,” Cameron said

4.)  Always be visible.

“When you do travel, travel in well-lit areas. Make sure you travel in safe parts of town,” Cameron said.

5.)  Remember Christ in everything you do.

“Every Christian can have fun and enjoy his/herself, but remember that everything you do is a reflection upon you, your family, Lipscomb but, most importantly, Christ,” Cameron said. “All your actions should be something that Christ could be proud of. You want everything you do to be an example of Christ, and that everything you do is a reflection of your relationship with him.”
