Text Box: Home Safety Advice by Mary Wilcox





Hi, Friends --   Here is a practical idea that can strengthen your safety net.   

The next time you come home for the night and go to put yours keys away, think of this:   It is a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation.   Start keeping your car keys next to your bed on the night stand when you go to sleep at night.   If you think someone is trying to get into your house, or if you hear a noise outside of your house; just press the panic alarm on your car key chain.  Test it.  It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain.  It works if you park in your driveway or garage.   If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your home, odds are the burglar or rapist won't stick around.... after a few seconds all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal will not want that.  Try yours to make sure it works before you rely on it.  Just know that you must press the alarm button again to turn it off.  


And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot.  The alarm will work the same way there.   This is something that should really be shared with everyone.  Maybe it could save a life or a sexual abuse crime.
