Home Safety Tips

While we all hope for the best, we sometimes need to plan for the worst. A little forethought and planning can go a long way to help ensure your home and family are protected. These home safety tips can help you get started on building a plan to ensure your home has the proper safety measures in place.

  1. Fire Extinguisher – At the minimum, make sure you have a fire extinguisher in the garage and kitchen. If you have a two-story home, it is also advisable to have one upstairs as well.
  2. Escape Ladder – If you have a two-story home, make sure you have an escape ladder and teach your family how to use it. Depending on the size of your house, it would be advisable to have one at each end of your home.
  3. Emergency Plan – Put an emergency plan into place and practice it regularly with your family. Walk them through what to do in case of a fire, a break in, or someone needing medical attention.
  4. Peephole – If your home does not have a clear view of who is at the front door, consider installing a peephole. It is an easy DIY project to help keep you safe when you don’t know who is at the door.
  5. Medicines and Cleaning Supplies – Keep all medicines, cleaning supplies, and chemicals locked up and out of reach of children. Even if children do not live in your home, a visiting curious child can find their way into a cabinet with dangerous chemicals. Make sure to keep the phone number for Poison Control on hand and easily accessible.
  6. Deadbolts and Locks – Make sure all exterior doors have high-quality deadbolts installed, including back doors, front door, and garage doors. If you just moved into the home, it is recommended that you change out all exterior door locks. The former homeowners may have given out keys to neighbors, friends, and family.
  7. Home Security System – Consider installing a monitored home security system and/or security cameras. Security systems, today, are for more than protection against burglaries. Some systems allow you to easily call police, fire or medical services in an emergency, with just the push of a button. Some security cameras also give you the ability to check in on your home throughout the day.
  8. Smoke Detector Batteries – Make a habit of changing your smoke detector batteries before the detector starts to beep. A good recommendation is to change them twice a year, when the time changes for daylight savings.
  9. Carbon Monoxide Detector – Install a carbon monoxide detector on each floor of your home. Some detectors do not need to be physically installed, only requiring you to plug them into an electrical outlet.
  10. Leave The Lights On – When you won’t be home until late, consider leaving a light on in your home so it appears to would-be burglars that someone is home. Since the light may be on for a while, it can also be a good idea to swap out that light bulb for an energy efficient bulb like an LED.
