CCTV CORE "EYE on Surveillance" Consumer Report
Protecting your home from vandalism during the Halloween Holiday
With Halloween being around the corner, everyone is busy planning a special time for decorating, pumpkin carving, dressing up in costumes and enjoying all those Halloween treats! Planning a special event for your family can be challenging. Some people may choose to throw a party orattend one, while others decide to take their kids out for trick or treating. Of course, along with all the fun activities comes a variety of safety issues and concerns. With a little extra preparation, everyone can have a fun and safe Halloween.
While parents are busy dealing with the evening festivities, neighborhood crimes could be occurring that could jeopardize the safety and security of your family. If you are away from your home, you should be sure to lock your doors and windows. Leaving lights on inside and outside of your home might make criminals think twice if they think someone may be at home. Halloween is also a time for concern how a "trick" could seriously affect you. "Worried about your new car being targeted?"
During this time of year, cars are twice as likely to be vandalized. Halloween can be a lot fun for kids of all ages, but it can also translate to smashed windows, slashed tires, scratched paint or worse for vehicle owners, because someone pushed their tricks a little too far. Pranksters tend to attack your property if you avoid giving them candy or are unwelcoming to them. "How can you avoid your car being vandalized?"
Following simple steps could help your chances of getting through without a scrape. If you are able to park your car in a garage, you have a big advantage for protection. In case you have to park your car outside, try to park as close to your home as possible in a well-lit area. Activating your car alarm is a definite must when trying to avoid theft or vandalism. Finally, you should keep your home well-lit and keep an ear out for any unfamiliar or unfriendly noises.
The best key to avoiding vandalism on Halloween night is to think ahead and take precautions. Ifyou show yourself to be a welcoming neighbor, you stand a pretty good chance of ending up with more treats than tricks!
