Is it victim blaming to warn people not to be dumb?

So the police launched a media campaign to warn women out drinking not to get too drink and wander out into the darkness alone, and to encourage their friends not to abandon them while they're drunk, and social media and indignant feminist groups are outraged at 'victim blaming'. Only the rapist is at fault, they say. Well, yes. On the other hand, do none of us have any responsibility to try and act responsibly in order to minimize the likelihood of being victims of violence?

Even as a man, I've tried to abstain from consuming alcohol and meeting strange women alone and especially in private and I'd advise any man to do the same. Does any man among you feel triggered by my recommendation?
