Why Make a Safety Plan?

Safety plans can be made for a variety of different situations such as:

  • Dealing with an emergency such as when a physical assault occurs
  • Continuing to live with a partner who has been abusive
  • Continuing to date a partner who has been abusive
  • Protecting yourself after you have ended a relationship with an abusive partner
Important Considerations for Your Safety Plan

There are certain things that are helpful to consider in planning for your future safety.

Phone Numbers:

Where can you keep important phone numbers (police, hotline, friends, shelter) for yourself and your children?

Help to call police:

Is there anyone you can ask to call the police it they hear suspicious noises coming from your house or apartment?

How to get out of your home:

If you need to get out of your house or apartment in a hurry, what door, window, elevator or stairwell will you be able to use in order to get out safely?

If you need a place to stay for a while, where can you go? Can you arrange to stay with family or friends in a crisis?
Do you have the phone number to the Interior Alaska Center for Non-Violent Living?
