Be Safe Cougs
Home Safe Home
If you’re traveling for a vacation, you’re going to want to be sure your home is secure and safe from vandalism, break-ins, and property disasters while you are gone. To keep your home safe, travel experts agree the key is to make your home look lived in even when you’re not there. Install timers on various lights around your home so it looks like someone is there. Secure all the doors and windows by locking them before you leave. Put motion detectors on your outside lights.
