Tips for making your home safer

Add a home security system

Home security has never been more affordable than it is today. Many simple and inexpensive home security systems require no installation, and you are able to monitor your home when you are away on your smartphone. From a simple camera doorbell to window and door alarms, you can add as much or as little as you need to feel safe. 

Be prepared for a fire

Do a periodic check of your smoke alarms to make sure they are working and that the battery backup is as well. Clean your furnace and chimney yearly to stay ahead of the game. Have a fire extinguisher that is easy to access if the need arises. 

Have an escape plan

It is important to have an emergency escape plan. The entire family needs to know exactly where they should gather in the event of an emergency or how they should escape their room if an emergency arises. You also need an evacuation route and maybe even two that you can choose from depending on what the emergency is. 

Get a generator

A generator allows you to have water, heat, and electricity in the event that the power goes out. It can make all the difference when it is cold or hot outdoors to keep you safe.
