This months safety tip will relate to home safety. Help insure that your home is as safe as possible when you leave, or when you’re at home. Here are a few tips to be mindful of:

-           If possible, equip your house or apartment door with a peephole and dead bolt lock with a one-inch throw.

-           Use outside lighting whenever possible.

-           Never hide your door key in a flower pot or under a mat. In fact, don't hide your door key anywhere outside your residence.

-           Be alert when returning home by having your key ready as you approach the door; in addition, if you think someone is inside, don’t go in! Call the police from a nearby phone.

-           Inform a trusted neighbor of travel plans. Have him or her collect mail and other deliveries. Don’t share your plans with strangers. Put 2 or more lights on a timer. Use them daily, not just when you're away.

-           Make certain your door is locked whenever you leave, even if only for a short time. Never leave your purse or valuables visibly unattended.

-           Be sure all windows have secure frames and locks. Secure sliding doors by placing a strong piece of wood in the track. Install locks to prevent sliding or lifting. Use window key locks. Keep keys in locks for quick exit in case of emergency or fire. Consider grates for basement and first floor windows.
