With the holidays very quickly approaching, you may be planning to head out of
town in these next few weeks. It is very important to remember to keep your home safe while you are away. Here are some tips that may help keep your home and belongings just as you left them.
Keep a secret. It is really best to only tell those who must know that you will be leaving town. Not all that we think can be trusted can.
Hold mail and newspapers. File a request with the post office and the newspaper company to hold your mail and papers so that no one will be able to tell just by looking at piled up newspapers that you are away.
Use timers for electronics. Plug lights, TVs, and radios into timers to “trick” potential intruders into thinking someone is home.
