Vacation Tips

        SUMMER IS HERE

Vacation Tips:

  •  If you have a security system, call your security company to let them know you will be on vacation this way any alarms will be taken seriously & with urgency.

 

  • Have a family member, a trusted friend, or a neighbor check on your home. Have them remove any delivered packages or free papers, water your plants and make sure you have no leaks inside your home.

 

  • Install timers on a couple of your lights with alternating times.

 

  • Stop your mail and newspaper delivery.

 

  • Leave your blinds or curtains open if you normally do.

 

  • Lock everything up, windows, doors & garage/shed.

 

  • Be sure you have secured any weapons you may own into a vault or safe.

 

  • Don’t leave spare keys out where you may normally hide them. Bring them in or give them to the person who is keeping watch on your home.

 

  • You may consider hiring a house sitter especially if you have a pet.

 

  • Most Importantly – Do NOT post any information on social media sites about going on vacation or during your vacation which may alert bad guys your home is empty.
