Helpful Hints to keep you and your home safe throughout the holiday season


Holiday Home Safety Tips…

Keep windows, garages and sheds locked, and don’t forget to use deadbolts.

Use timers to turn on lights and a television or radio.

Maintain at least a foot of space between a burning candle and anything that can catch fire.

When handing lights outdoors, avoid using staples or nails which can damage wiring.  Use UL-rated clips or wires instead.

Don’t leave a space key in a “hiding place.”  Burglars know where to look.

Lock your power box with an electricity authority lock (lock to which you and the electric company have a key) so that your home security alarm system can’t be cut off from the power supply.

 Wishing you a safe and happy holiday season!
