In recognition of June being National Safety Month, protect yourself by regularly ensuring that you home is in good working order.
- after a storm and each winter season, ensure that extensive damage has fallen upon your home
- keep an eye out for exposed wires, call a professional to repair as needed
- notify the utility company if you smell gas
- each night, ensure that doors and windows at your home are locked
- make the most of motion or daylight sensor lights
Motion lights are only as good as the electricity that powers them. It seems that we take electricity for granted these days. We never have to worry about it being available, but what would you do if one day nothing happened when you flipped a switch? Double-down on your home’s safety and comforts by including a diesel generator into your safety plan.
Not only does electricity provide a great deal of convenience, but power keeps your food edible and provides your home with a great deal of safety precautions, too. Social deviants usually lurk in the dark and when they see a home that looks vulnerable, a “crime of opportunity” may strike. There has been an alarming spike in the number of home invasions, not only locally but across the globe. With signs of the times, many have resorted to committing devious attempts to steal from others. Homes are being raided in even the safest neighborhoods; truly a cause for alarm.
When it comes to home safety, being alert and consistent is key. Complete regular and detailed sweeps around the home to check for areas needing improvement or items that may trigger crimes of opportunity. In no time, you will have the safest home in the neighborhood.
