To ensure your safety this holiday season, please consider the following safety tips. We hope you have a wonderful time celebrating with your friends, family, and neighbors.
-Let a trustworthy neighbor know if you’re planning to go out of town for the holidays so that they can keep an eye on your home. Don’t hide a key outside the house!
-Stop your mail and newspaper delivery. If it piles up, it’s a sure sign you’re not home.
-Park in well-lit and high activity areas close to store entrances during your last minute holiday shopping. Keep all windows closed and doors locked. Do not leave valuables visible in your vehicle! If you need to return to your car while shopping, place your bags in the trunk and move your car to another safe location.
-Add Emergency Contacts to Nextdoor to provide your neighbors with another way to help out in case a safety concern arises. Go to your profile and select Add Emergency Contacts. If you are not already a member of Nextdoor you can join free by going to Nextdoor.com.
-Arm your security system to protect your home. While it may seem obvious, your mind is distracted when you’re rushing out the door. Don’t forget this simple step to ensure your home stays protected.
