Security important around the holidays

Posted On Wed, November 16, 2011

A recent report from Master Lock encouraged consumers to stay safe during the holiday season by taking a series of precautions.

Make sure that the home is secured when leaving, the report noted. Many people travel during the holidays, and whether it is far away or near, the home can be vulnerable. Ensuring that the home is locked will help discourage break-ins. Secure windows, doors, garages and any other possible entryways. If there is a long trip planned, give a trusted neighbor a key and stop mail for the time being.

"The holidays are a fun but busy time, and the flurry of activity can often cause important considerations, such as safety and security, to go overlooked," said Rebecca Smith, vice president, marketing for Master Lock. "By taking a few precautions, you'll rise above the chaos and ensure your holiday season is spent enjoying time with friends and family."

While being cautious can help minimize break-ins, it may be best to take some initiative in addition to precautions. By comparing home insurance quotes, a homeowner may find something that not only has theft coverage, but is affordable as well.
