Before you leave.....
IS YOUR HOME SAFE? Here are some safety Do’s and Don’t's.
DO: lock all your doors and windows when you go out. Pay particular
Attention to the back of your premises - a popular entry point for burglars.
DO: keep your shed an / or garage locked. If your garage has a communicating
door with the interior of your house, make sure it is securely locked.
DO: close the curtains and leave a light on in a room (not the hallway) when
you are out for the evening.
DO: light up any dark areas around your home.
DON’T: leave door keys in hiding places such as under a door mat or in a
Flower pot. Thieves know all the hiding places.
DON’T: leave a window open a few inches for the cat to get in or out.
Burglars find this very useful too.
DON’T: leave ladders around. If you must leave them outside, make sure
they are padlocked to something secure.
