Stay safe during holiday break

When you head out for the holiday break to enjoy time with family and friends, observe these safety tips.

While you are away:

  • Don’t post your travel plans on social media! This lets people know when your home—and your valuables—will be alone. Do let someone know your travel plans, such as: your departure date and time from campus, where you plan to stop en route or overnight, estimated date and time of arrival at your destination.
  • Keep your residence hall room secure while you are away. Do not leave valuables in your room over the holiday breaks.
  • Have your mail, newspapers and deliveries stopped or picked up by a neighbor, friend or relative.
  • Don’t leave a key hidden outside.
  • Secure all windows.
  • Use timers to operate lights.
  • If you park your car in the driveway, have a friend move it occasionally.

Stay safe on the road and in the air:

  • Get your car road-ready and start your trip with a full tank of gas.
  • Keep an emergency road kit in the car in case of a breakdown or accident.
  • Don’t be distracted. Drivers who text and drive are 23 times more likely to get into a crash.
  • Don’t drink and drive.
  • At airports, remember the 3-1-1 rule which limits the amount of liquid you can bring in your carry-on bag to 3.4 ounces.
  • Pack smartly to help security lines move along quickly.

The holidays are full of family, friends and fun—enjoy the time safely!
