Christmas Safety Tips

While you're out standing in line for the stores to open at dawn or home late trying to scoop up every last deal on Black Friday remember to keep in mind these basic Christmas safety tips.
  • Lock everything: This seems obvious, but more often than you would expect a burglar gets into a house just because something was left open or unlocked.
  • Secure valuables: Never leave anything of value out in plain sight. Nothing should ever be visible from any window and the master bedroom is the first room any intruder will check for valuables.
  • Control your social status: Though you might be tempted to broadcast to the world about how excited you are for your holiday travels or Black Friday shopping sprees, resist the urge to broadcast to the whole world that you are not going to be home.
  • Leave the light on: Not the most eco-friendly advice, but the more it looks like someone is home, the less likely that someone will try to intrude on your home. Keep the lights on.
  • Activate your alarm system: Again, while it may seem obvious, your mind is distracted and you could be in a rush to get out the door. Don't forget to arm your security system - this simple step will go a long way to protect your home.

Parking lot safety

  • Lock your car when you get in or out of it.
  • Park in a well-lit parking lot or under a street light.
  • If you have car problems raise the hood; remain inside.
  • Be wary of strangers; if you feel uncomfortable walking to your car ask for an escort in the store.
  • Place your packages in the trunk of your car; keep them out of sight and out of mind.
  • When returning to your vehicle, scan the area, carry keys in your hand, unlock the door and get in quickly, and lock yourself inside.

Self-Protection Tips

  • Do not walk along parking lots or streets without looking around for danger.
  • Stop frequently and look around.
  • Carry a sound making device and small flashlight.
  • Try to give the appearance that you are alert. Even if it's cold, rainy or windy, keep your head up and look around. Attackers target those people they think are weak and unsuspecting.
  • Be careful in providing assistance to strangers who approach you, often they intend to steal from you or harm you.
  • Do not participate in any situation to make money that seems too good to be true. It will be.

Home and Car Protection

  • Keep your home and car locked at all times.
  • Never leave your keys in the ignition, even parked in the garage.
  • Use a locking device on your steering wheel.
  • Alarms can be very useful for both cars and homes, but we must activate them.
  • Record with a camera the contents of your home or apartment, store the photos or video tape in another location. Record the serial numbers of your valuable property for tracking purposes, if necessary.
  • If going out of town for a few days, put lights on a timer; stop mail and newspaper delivery;
  • Ask a neighbor to watch your house and park in your driveway occasionally while you are out of town.
  • Don't discuss your holiday plans to be out of town on social networking sites.
