Vacations Provide Burglars With Plenty of Time to Enter Your Home, Remove Large Items and Search Leisurely for Hidden Valuables. Don’t Let This Happen To YOU!
If you’re planning a vacation, take the following precautions to protect your home while you are away!
___Ask police to check your home and patrol your neighborhood more closely while you’re away.
___Stop mail and newspaper deliveries, or have a trusted neighbor collect them while you are away so that they do not accumulate.
___Secure all doors, windows, pet entrances and garage doors.
___Transfer valuables to a safety deposit box.
___Place Timers on indoor lamps to illuminate your home at night, and set timers to turn on radios and televisions randomly during the day and early evening.
___Place timers on outdoor lights so they turn on at dusk and turn off at dawn.
___Check that no bulbs are burned out on your indoor lamps, outdoor lighting fixtures or low voltage lighting system.
___Arrange to have your landscaping continue, or your driveways and walkways shoveled. A snow-covered driveway without tire tracks or an overgrown yard is an immediate indicator to burglars that nobody is home.
___Keep some shades and blinds up and curtains open to maintain a normal appearance.
___Have a trusted friend or family member check your home, inside and out, each day.
___Remove messages from your telephone answering machine daily so that the “beep” is always short. And don’t indicate on your message that you are on vacation.
___Park a car half-way down your driveway to create the illusion that somebody is home as well as inhibit a burglar to use your driveway as a way to better access your property.
___Hide garbage cans in the garage or apartment.
