Tips for planning an escape:
Be ready to leave at a moment’s notice. Keep the car fueled up and facing the driveway exit, with the driver’s door unlocked. Hide a spare car key where you can get it quickly. Have emergency cash, clothing, and important phone numbers and documents stashed in a safe place (at a friend’s house, for example).
Practice escaping quickly and safely. Rehearse your escape plan so you know exactly what to do if under attack from your abuser. If you have children, have them practice the escape plan also.
- Make and memorize a list of emergency contacts. Ask several trusted individuals if you can contact them if you need a ride, a place to stay, or help contacting the police. Memorize the numbers of your emergency contacts, local shelter, and domestic violence hotline.
- If you are concerned they will suspect you are trying to escape, pretend you are sick. At like you are cold and wear layers of clothes that day.
- Shelters (listed on links above)
- Fire Stations
- Do NOT go to urgent care facilities or local clinics. They will send you directly to the emergency room. Skip a step and go directly to the emergency room!
