Baltimore, MD - May 7, 2021  - Important safety tips to keep in mind when coming and going from your car or home and walking outside:

When pulling onto your block, call a family member or neighbor to have them keep an eye out and pay careful attention to your surroundings.

Do not talk on your phone or text while walking in and out. Again, be aware of your surroundings.

When arriving at your house, DO NOT sit in your car playing on or chatting on your phone. Have your keys to your house in your hand and go directly inside.
