Safety Tips

Safety begins with simple steps that you can take today to prevent theft, fire, and carbon monoxide poisoning.

Preventing Theft!

Here's How You Can Help Protect Your Home

  • Install a monitored home security system that adequately protects entry into your home.
  • Lights On - Leave an outside light on at night, or install light activated motion sensors. If you're going to be out after dark, leave a light on inside the home as well. Invest in timer switches for those times when you're away from home overnight.
  • Make Noise - Leave your TV or radio on or on a timer switch while you're away; it's is a good way to convince would-be burglars that someone is home.
  • Papers and Trash – Ask a friend or neighbor to pick up any newspapers from your driveway and take out your trash while you are away.
  • Hide-A-Key - If you insist on leaving a spare key somewhere outside the home, don't make it an obvious spot. The first place a thief looks is under the mat.
  • Lock Up - Install deadbolts on doors and window latches to help prevent break-ins.
  • Trim the Hedges - High hedges can provide an excellent hiding place. Keep hedges trimmed no higher than your windowsills.
  • Peepholes - Peepholes let you see who is at the door without opening it.
  • Notes - Never leave notes on your door, even when you're home.
  • Park in the Driveway - A car in the driveway signals "someone is home". It also helps prevent burglars from backing in for easy loading.

Fire Safety!

  • Be sure to have smoke detectors integrated into your professionally monitored security system.
  • Post Emergency Numbers - Make sure everyone in the family knows where to find the numbers.
  • Fire Extinguisher - 41% of residential fires begin in the kitchen. Keep a working fire extinguisher nearby.
  • Leave Space - Keep combustibles at least 3-feet away from space heaters, wood burning stoves, fireplaces, and furnaces.
  • Close the Door - Sleeping with the bedroom door closed gains valuable seconds if a fire breaks out.
  • Prepare and Practice - Make sure you have an escape plan for your family; practice how to "Stop, Drop & Roll" with your kids.

Preventing Carbon Monoxide Poisoning!

  • Install a CO monitor near your fuel-burning appliances. For added safety, make it part of your home’s alarm system.
  • System Check-Up - Have a qualified professional check all fuel burning appliances, furnaces, venting and chimney systems at least once a year.
  • Turn it Off - Never leave a motor vehicle running in an attached garage or carport where CO may enter your home
