Introduction to Safety
Being safe at home and in the community is really important. You might not think about this until you’re on your own – or until something happens, like a fire or an accident. But being independent means that you have to take responsibility for being safe.
Creating a plan for safety isn’t something that should make you afraid or overwhelmed. It can be a very empowering experience if you create a plan before an emergency happens. You will feel more in control of an emergency situation and be better prepared to make sure your needs are met.
