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...
- Do not leave Facebook or other social media posts letting people know that you will be out of town.
- 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.
- Remove ladders and garbage cans away from the home. These can allow easy access to the second story windows.
- 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!
