Keeping Safe At Home
A criminal attack against you or your family can take place at any time, as can a fire or other disaster. However, you can influence what happens to you by assuming more responsibility for your own security.
Residential security is a critical component of any personal security program. The following guidelines should be used in reviewing your residential security.
- All entrances should have quality locks–preferably deadbolt. Check your:
- Front Door
- Rear Door
- Garage Door(s)
- Patio Door
- Sliding Glass Door
- Swimming Pool Gate
- Don’t leave keys “hidden” outside the home. Leave an extra key with a trusted neighbor.
- Keep doors locked even when you or family members are at home.
- Have window locks installed on all windows. Use them.
- Have locks installed on your fuse boxes and external power sources.
- If you have burglar or intrusion alarms, check and use them.
- Keep at least one fire extinguisher in house, and be sure to keep one in the kitchen. Show family members how to use them.
- Periodically check smoke detectors and replace batteries when necessary.
- Keep flashlights in several areas in the house. Check the batteries often, especially if you have children in your home. (They love to play with flashlights!)
- A family dog can be a deterrent to criminals. But remember, even the best watch-dog can be controlled by food or poison.
- Know your neighbors. Develop a rapport with them and offer to keep an eye on each other’s homes, especially during trips.
