Emergency Digits and Dollars – College Safety
I mean, who memorizes phone numbers anymore? And while we are on the subject, who carries cash? Things can go real bad, real quick. College safety is vital to a positive college life. I always tell my kids to carry emergency phone numbers in their wallet and a minimum of $20 cash. So, I created something for you to carry both in one location. The Bag of Courage envelope includes a small insert for your emergency phones (pick a parent and a local, trusted friend). Convince your parents to give you $20 cash for the emergency fund. Most parent gets it and want to help…It’s up to the college student to convince themselves that their safety is important. It’s a lifestyle change and it’s up to you to take this serious.
I carry the “digits and dollars” in my wallet at all times. Things just happen…a little cash in hand never hurts during a blackout. Natural disasters seldom give you a warning that something out of the ordinary is about to occur and leave you in a precarious situation. Join the movement to be brave and be prepared in college.
Be Prepared – Never Ever without Light – College Safety
I never like being left in the dark. During emergencies such as blackouts, light sticks are life savers and are relatively inexpensive items. The Bag of Courage college safety kit comes with two Duralume Light Sticks in addition to the flashlight. Use them when the lights go out or conserve battery life in other devices such as flashlight or phone light. Similar to the flashlight, the light sticks can be used for illumination in the dark, signaling, as flares or as a deterrent. You can store one in your car and one in your dorm or apartment. These aren’t cheesy light sticks you find at your local convenient store. I selected these light sticks specifically for their 3-year shelf life and 12 hours of illumination. Don’t rely on other to save the day…Be Brave Be Prepared.
