General safety tips:

*Consume no more than a responsible amount of alcohol. Over intoxication can make you appear to be a better target for crime. This can also reduce your risk of becoming injured from things like falling. 
*Walk in pairs or small groups on well lit and well traveled pathways.
*Carry only a small/reasonable amount of cash.
*Avoid setting your wallet, handbag, phone, or other valuables down and/or out of your view.
*Lock and secure the doors and windows of your home and vehicle. Do not leave valuables in plain sight. 
*Do not accept rides from strangers and when walking remain on the sidewalk. Look both ways before crossing any street or alleyway.
*Leave a porch or patio light on during hours of darkness. If available turn on motion sensors to provide light when needed.
*Pay attention to your surroundings and let police know about potential problems or criminal activity. Report suspicious activity to police.

Prior to the event and as a good rule of thumb in general:

*Record serial numbers and descriptions of property.
*Create an "In Case of Emergency" contact in your phone. This could help emergency services in the event you can't communicate. iPhone 6 users can use the Health app to create an ICE contact that appears on the lock screen.
*Pay attention to your surroundings and let police know about potential problems or criminal activity. Report suspicious activity to police.
