Sound the Alarm #1: Install smoke detectors on every floor of your home and carbon monoxide detectors near sleeping areas. If already installed, test them! Tip: Replace the batteries every daylight-savings time change.

Sound the Alarm #2: Homes with monitored security systems are about 70% less likely to be targeted by an unauthorized intruder. AND... MONITORED SMOKE AND CARBON MONOXIDE SYSTEMS SAVE LIVES AND PROTECT PROPERTY!

Avoid Overload: Check for overloaded extension cords – usage should not exceed the recommended wattage.

Cover Outlets: Cover all unused outlets to prevent children from sticking a finger (or a knife or fork!) in the socket.

Plan Your Escape: Practice a fire escape plan with your family. Identify two exits from every room and what to do with young children during an emergency.

Light It Up: Lights in and around the house on randomized timers discourage would-be burglars. Timers are an inexpensive way to make your house appear occupied while you are away.

Bushy Is Good: Plant thorny, thick shrubbery under ground-level-accessible windows, especially in areas not easily visible from the street. Anything you can do to make it noisier and more physically difficult to enter your home is a smart practice!

Keep Extinguishers Handy: Place all-purpose fire extinguishers in key locations in your home – the kitchen, bedroom and basement. Be sure to check expiration dates regularly and know how to use them safely.

Create a Safe Exit: In addition to alarms and extinguishers, consider an escape ladder if your home has two floors. Keep emergency numbers and contacts readily available by the phone.

Look for UL: Look for the UL Mark when purchasing appliances, electronics and anything that plugs into an outlet. ALL EQUIPMENT AND DEVICES SOLD BY ABBOT ALARM ARE UL-LISTED FOR THEIR INTENDED PURPOSE!
