Hot Cars

With warmer weather approaching, remember not to leave kids or pets locked in the car.  Even if you only have to run into a store for a minute, don't leave your kids in the car.  For a number of reasons, a minute could turn into several minutes and longer.  It's not worth it.

Set Your Alarms

If you have an alarm, set it. So often we hear stories about people's homes getting burglarized. Many victims say they forgot to set their alarms. Although an alarm will not stop someone who is set on breaking into your home, it could be a great deterrent. If you have it, set it.
