Back to School Safety Tips
El Cajon, CA (PRWEB) September 13, 2014
In addition to home alarm monitoring service, Alarm Relay, Inc. strives to provide families with the best home security tips. As school starts across the country, Alarm Relay, Inc. urges families to review and implement safety tips and emergency plans to enhance safety preparedness.
Alarm monitoring services provide parents with control and peace of mind for the duration of time their children are home alone. While children should be taught to operate the home alarm system, there are instances when a parent is away from the home and may need to intervene on potentially harmful situations. By utilizing one of the mobile security apps offered by Alarm Relay, parents can use their smart phones to monitor when children arrive home, lock or unlock doors, and arm and disarm the alarm. Additionally, parents can have all alarm notifications be sent to them through email or text message.
Although Alarm Relay is known for low cost burglary alarm monitoring, they also provide a wide range of additional services. Fire alarm monitoring, carbon monoxide monitoring, and flood detection are some of the additional services offered 24/7 by Alarm Relay. Even if a system is not armed, the alarm can still detect smoke, carbon monoxide, or high water levels and generate an alert to the Central Station.
In conjunction with having a home alarm monitoring system in place, Alarm Relay recommends a family emergency plan. Thinking through potential emergency situations and arranging a plan for each family member can save precious minutes in the event of an actual crisis. From fire to medical emergency, each member of the family should be familiar with all emergency plans and safety equipment. Children need to know how to use all aspects of an alarm system properly. Additionally, it is important that children know how to use fire extinguishers and turn off gas, electricity, and water sources.
Posting pertinent information, such as the plans for each emergency, as well as a list of emergency phone numbers is a nice safety net for children staying home alone. Helping children become familiar with plans by running drills and teaching them safety tips will grant parents peace of mind while their children are home alone.
Making use of the information and services provided by Alarm Relay, parents can rest assured that should an emergency arise, their children will be able to confidently and safely take action.
