Yes, it should be safe. You can use a trickle charger to recharge battery, or a float charger to keep it topped off (good if you plan to leave it sit for a long time), or you can jump start it from another car with jumper cables, or finally you can use a jump pack to jump start it. (Jump packs run $60 and up). A trickle charger will take a couple hours (or more), if you need an immediate start use the jumper cables or jump pack. If you belong to AAA you can give them a call too!

Should clarify to the above, that applies to the 12V battery, not the hybrid's battery, even if the 12V battery is in the trunk, there are battery posts under the hood you can connect jumper cables too.
