Memorial Day week-end is the "unofficial" beginning to the summer and vacation season.  Here are 4 tips to safeguard your home while you are away...

  1. Do not leave Facebook or other social media posts letting people know that you will be out of town.
  2. Turn your ringer on your home phone down so strangers don't hear repeated ringing and buy a light switch timer for the main rooms in your home.
  3. Remove ladders and garbage cans away from the home. These can allow easy access to the second story windows.
  4. Remove your spare key from your porch or garage and lend it to a friend who will be checking on your home during the day.

Now that your home is safe, check out the Red Cross for personal safety tips this summer!
