Safety planning

  • KLS has written a pamphlet specifically about safety planning in regards to PFA actions.
  • Please review the Safety Planning handout before completing the PFA forms provided by the courts.
    • It may be hard to think about some of the aspects relating to safety planning. They do, after all, have something to do with avoiding your abuser. But having a plan makes taking action easier in the event something happens. It’s always good to be prepared.
    • If you have kids, make sure to share your plan with them if they are involved.
    • Share your plan with the necessary people, like who you would call if you were in trouble, or where you would stay.
    • Be one step ahead!
