Is anybody home?

Empty houses are attractive targets for thieves but following these tips can help protect your home while you’re travelling this summer.

Keep it to yourself. Don’t post holiday plans or live updates on social networking sites as this
can alert thieves to an empty house.
Get a house sitter. Have someone stay or ask a trusted neighbour to check-in daily.
Set timers. Set lights on timers in different rooms of your home.
Newspapers and mail. Suspend newspaper delivery and have someone pick up your mail
Maintain your yard. Arrange to have your lawn mowed and your grass and flowers watered.
