HOW TO: Protect Your Home From BurglariesPosted: December 8, 2011
Here is an excerpt from a new blog post at GreggMarcus.com:
Long Island Insurance Executive, Gregg S. Marcus, lists some easy ways to avoid your home becoming part of this scary statistic.
Secure your home’s property
Walk around the perimeter of your property and assess where the home’s weaknesses are. Adding high walls, fences and thorny hedges will make your property less of a target to intruders. Make sure to keep ladders, bins and garden benches away from your places where someone might use them to get easy access to your home.
If you don’t have a home alarm, it is in your best interest to get one. If you do have an alarm, make sure there is signage on your gate, windows or near your front door to make it known to thieves. Remember, a home alarm can’t stop a thief from gaining access to your home, but it certainly may deter a burglar from trying.
Keep all doors and windows locked
