HOW TO PROTECT YOUR HOME WHILE AWAY

Published by FUN MATES PRESS

 
 

Be sure to lock before you leave, and let a neighbor have a key.

When leaving your home, practice the following advice - it

could pay big, big dividends.

GOING TO THE MARKET OR OUT TO DINNER?

A residence which presents a "lived-in" appearance is a

deterrent to burglars.  Never leave notes that can inform a

burglar that your house is unoccupied.  Make certain all windows

and doors are secured before departing.  An empty garage

advertises your absence, so close the doors.

When going out at night, leave one or more interior lights on

and perhaps have a radio playing (TV sets should not be left

unattended). Timers may be purchased that will turn lights on

and off during your absence.

Do not leave door keys under flower pots or doormats, inside an

unlocked mailbox, over the doorway, or in other obvious places.

WHEN PLANNING VACATIONS OR PROLONGED ABSENCES

Discontinue milk, newspaper, and other deliveries by phone or in

person ahead of time.  Do not leave notes.

Arrange for lawn care and have someone remove advertising

circulars and other debris regularly.  On the other hand,

several toys scattered about will create an impression of

occupancy.

Notify the post office to forward your mail or have a

trustworthy person pick it up daily.  Apartment house tenants

should also heed this hint since stuffed mail receptacles are a

give-away when no one is home.

Inform neighbors of your absence so they can be extra alert for

suspicious persons.  Leave a key with them so your place may be

periodically inspected.  Ask them to vary the positions of your

shades and blinds.

When you leave, do not publicize your plans.  Some burglars

specialize in reading newspaper accounts of other people's

vacation activities.

If you find a door or window has been forced or broken while you

were away, DO NOT ENTER. The criminal may still be inside.  Use

a neighbor's phone immediately to summon police.

Do not touch anything or clean up if a crime has occurred.

Preserve the scene until police inspect for evidence.

 
 

ALWAYS REMEMBER TO:
 

1. Lock before you leave.

 2. Trust a neighbor with a key.

 3. Be a concerned neighbor - yourself.
