When should you call 911?

As a victim of abuse, it is important to know when a 911 call is warranted. If you feel as though an incident is about to occur, try to move into a room with access to a phone. Do not hesitate to call 911 if you feel like you, or a loved one, is in immediate danger. It is important to make the call as discreet as possible because abusers like to be in control and may act out if they see you calling 911.

ON WHAT YOU

CAN DO?

Do you know how to protect yourself from an abuser?

There are many measures you can take to protect yourself from your abuser, whether you are still with them, are trying to leave, or have left. In each instance, it is important to have a plan.

 

  • If you are still with your abuser and feel as though an incident may occur, move to a room with access to a phone and is free of any objects that could be used as weapons.
  • If you are trying to leave your abuser, identify a way to naturally leave the house, such as taking out the trash or walking the dog, and practice until you feel comfortable leaving for good.
  • If you have already left your abuser, it may be helpful to change up any daily routines they may be aware of, like when you go to and leave work, and which routes you take.

 

It is always best to work with an advocate to develop your plan.
