Spring Safety Tips

When the weather is warm, it's tempting to be more laid-back about everything! It's easy to leave the windows open to enjoy the warm weather. But it's important to be careful so you and your family can stay safe. Here are our top five tips for staying safe and secure:

1. Keep your doors locked on your property. If you have windows open when the weather is nice, be sure to close and lock them when you leave.

2. Install a motion-sensitive light outside your home's entrances. This will help you if you come home to a dark house, but it will also alert you if anyone is on your property at night.

3. Return items to garage or shed after use. If you leave a ladder or tools out, someone could use those to break into your home.

4. When having any work done on your house, always use a contractor that you are familiar with or that has been recommended to you.

5. Roll up your car windows and don't leave anything valuable in the vehicle, even if it is parked in your driveway.
