“It is better to be safe than sorry.” This common phrase is absolutely applicable to a relevant topic recently discussed by Home Security NW. Their new blog post discusses preparation steps for the event of a home intrusion. The article breaks down the precautionary steps every homeowner should take to best prepare the potentiality of a break-in. To view the article, click here.
Home Security NW emphasizes that every homeowner should develop a plan. The first recommendation is the installation of a home security system. Even the most basic system is a strong deterrent for a thief looking for easy money.
It is also vital to designate a safe room. In the event of a home intrusion, the residents need a place to congregate. Decide on a room in the house that has a thick door with a locking mechanism. Consider installing an additional deadbolt.
The article also recommends keeping a cell phone on a charger in the safe room. Home intruders are known to shutdown the landlines, so having quick access to a cell phone is critical. During a break-in situation, the homeowner and family members should not frantically scramble for a cell phone on their way to the safe room.
The article lists several other tips including defense weapons, an escape plan, and a home invasion drill. According to Home Security NW, “Ensuring that you know the proper procedures of your established, effective safety measures will help increase your chances of escaping the situation without violence.”
