Three Steps to Safety – When you go away
A little prep before your vacation can help make it easier to relax while you’re away. These three things will help to keep your home from looking vacant and help ensure you find things as you left them.
Ask a neighbor to collect your mail and newspaper, and offer to return the favor.
Put an automatic timer on at least two lights and a radio (an oscillating fan can also give the appearance of movement in the home). Consider photoelectric sensors to turn outside lights on and off automatically.
Tell a trusted neighbor when you’re leaving and when you’ll return. Include an itinerary and phone numbers where you can be reached in an emergency.
