With such beautiful warm weather and pristine beaches, there’s no doubt that you’ll visit the beach during your stay. Popular beaches are patrolled by Surf Lifesavers during the summer months. When you see red and yellow flags on a beach it indicates that there is currently a lifesaving service operating on the beach. The lifeguards have chosen a section of the beach that is best for swimming and they will closely supervise this area.
To keep you and your valuable safe at home, make sure you keep your doors and windows locked, particularly at night and when the house is empty. Make sure you have good exterior lighting and leave an outside light and a couple of indoor lights on when you go out at night. Make sure all the residents of the house have a set of keys and never leave a key under the mat, in the mailbox or in other hiding places.
All of Central’s campuses have security guards onsite. Feel free to approach them if you feel unsafe at any time or are concerned about anyone around the campus. Be alert when leaving the campus and remember if you are walking at night to walk, try to walk in a group and on brightly lit, well-used streets as much as possible. Listening to an MP3 player can distract you from your environment so try to keep it to a low level or only use one earpiece.
