For those of us living in big cities, at some point in our lifetimes we may be living in a high rise apartment or condominium building. Unfortunately just because you take an elevator to your home every night doesn’t mean that you are safe.
Having lived in a ‘condo’ building in downtown Chicago for 5 years in my late 20’s, I found this article interesting. I also chose my building because it had 24 hour doorman and I wanted someone to know who went in/out of the building. I didn’t think of it in terms of personal preparedness or personal security at that time, but that was exactly what I was doing.
This article just reminded me that no matter where you live it is a matter of risk and reward. If you live in a high rise maybe there are a few pointers here for you too.
Read an interesting article on personal security matters.
