Safety Tips


Here are a few safety tips before you leave:
  • Arrange for a trusted neighbor to do some yard upkeep or park a car in your driveway.
  • Be careful about who you tell of your vacation plans.
  • Don't forget to lock your doors and windows.
  • Leave emergency contact numbers with someone you trust.
  • Remember, burglars find house keys easily when they are hidden in potted plants, under doormats, or above the door ledge.
  • Stop all postal and newspaper deliveries.
  • Try and maintain a "lived in" look while you are away. Use timers on lights and turn the ring tone down on your phones.
Have a great vacation!
