Home Holiday Safety
 
Burglar Proof Your Holiday Home!
Whether you’re ready or not, the holidays are here. The below are simple suggestions, yet taking time in the present could help you avoid losing your presents later!
 
  • Always lock up your home and automobiles, even if only stepping away for a few moments.
  • With home and autos, keep valuables out of sight. Put items in trunk before your next destination so theives don't see you placing them there.
  • Keep holiday gifts and other valuables out of sight from the outside of your home.
  • Have an extra set of keys with a trusted friend or neighbor; never have a key under a mat or other 'secret' hiding place as they are not so secret to theives.
  • Keep entryways, pathways, stairwells, porches and yards well lit.
  • Make sure the locks on all windows and doors are in perfect working order.
  • Keep important paperwork in a safety deposit box.
  • If you will be away, make sure your home has 'lived-in' look: ask neighbor to mow lawn; temporarily stop deliveries; use timers and home automation devices.
  • Be a good neighbor to others: Contact the police if you notice suspicious activity.
