Planning what to do to survive
Even when restraining orders and other court actions are in place, violence can occur during domestic crisis situations

Domestic violence is often unpredictable, and sometimes deadly.  That’s why potential victims need a plan.  WKSU’s Tim Rudell reports.

Even in quiet places
like Salem in Columbiana County, domestic violence’s tragedy can touch the community repeatedly. Four northeast Ohio women who lived in or hailed from Salem died in the past year at the hands of domestic partners -- three of whom also took their own lives.

Awareness
With Domestic Violence Awareness Month next week, the Christina Shelter for Women and Children in nearby Lisbon  is pushing awareness of “planning.”  Program manager Beth Schmitt says the time to think and prepare is when  people are free of an immediate crisis. “Say, if the perpetrator has left and you’re going to stay there at the home: change the locks on your doors; install locks on your windows; install a new garage door opener.  Basics, like that.  And teach your children what to do in an emergency.”

Guide
Written “how-tos” for planning to prevent and survive threats will be available at a rally and balloon launch for Domestic Violence Awareness October 16th, in Lisbon.
