There are many things you can do to make your home, vehicle and belongings safer and to protect yourself.
One of the most important steps you can take is getting to know your neighbours. Keep an eye on each other’s properties, report anything suspicious to the police, share information, and discuss crime and safety concerns with each other.
You can also take steps to prepare for disasters. In the event of a disaster, such as a flood, slip or earthquake, emergency services could take several days to reach you. Your ability to survive could depend on the food and resources you and your neighbours have between you.
