Holiday Safety

5 Tips to Keep Help You Stay Safe This Season

1. Keep your travel plans offline – If you are planning to travel over the holidays, NEVER post where you are going, when you are leaving when you’ll return. Doing so may make you a prime target for theft.
2. Notify a neighbor – If you head out of town be sure to ask a trusted neighbor to keep an eye out for suspicious activity. Have someone gather your mail and use home automation to ensure it looks as though someone is home.
3. Protect your packages – Thieves like to strike when there’s a delivery package left unguarded on your porch. Consider adding a doorbell or outdoor cam or giving special delivery instructions about where to leave packages.
4. Watch your Christmas lights – To help prevent accidental fires, be sure to inspect strands of Christmas lights before placing them on a tree or elsewhere. Look for frayed or worn wires and broken lights. Be sure to turn lights off when leaving the house or before turning in for the night.
5. Inspect the furnace and chimney – Take the time to have a professional inspect your furnace, clean out air ducts and sweep the chimney before you heat your home. This is also a great time to test batteries on smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.
