|How to Keep Safe at Home
Did you know that 40 percent of home invasions occur because a door or window
was left unlocked? So, it is wise to:
Measures for Greeting Visitors
- Lock doors and windows, especially when you're home alone.
- Secure sliding glass doors with pins to prevent both horizontal and vertical
movement, especially when you're away from home for extended periods of time.
- Fix broken locks or windows and install deadbolts on doors leading outside.
- Replace all locks immediately upon moving into a new home.
How to Keep Your Valuables Safe
- Install peepholes in all exterior doors. It's always a good idea to look
through your peephole viewer to see who's there before you open the door.
- Make sure you request identification from sales or repair people before you
let them in. Never leave such representatives in your home unsupervised.
- Store high-value items such as jewelry, furs and firearms in a small closet
with a solid-core door, a non-removable hinge and a deadbolt lock.
- Permanently mark your valuables with your driver's license or Social
Security number. Also, keep pictures and records of all marked objects in a safe
- Keep important papers, valuable jewelry and large amounts of cash in a
safety deposit box.
- Keep gift-wrapped packages hidden from outside view.
- When you purchase new electronic equipment, do not advertise it. Break down
cartons before discarding in your trash.
