Its not a pleasant subject, but unfortunately its a conversation you need to have. The unsavoury elements of society are sometimes unavoidable and its good to be prepared in case they come your way.
One of the best deterrents for an intruder is none other than 'Mans Best Friend' our trusty Canines. They are alert to strangers and their bark often keeps intruders away. There are some other things you can do to be prepared for the worst. Here are some more tips on helping you to stay safe from intruders while you are at home;
Call emergency services as quickly as possible
Call as soon as you realise that something isn’t right, even if you can hear strange noises persist or you see someone lurking around the house. Your local police services will come to your aid quickly and help you with the intruder.
Have an escape plan
Just like the fire escape you have for your home, find a safe and easy way to exit your house and go get help if you are in danger. Practice this and refresh your memory regularly. If modifications happen to your home, modify your plan!
Protect yourself early with security doors and windows.
The idea of having to prepare yourself against intruders in your own home does sound quite terrible. The truth is though that this could very well happen and you need to be safe! Having secure doors and windows is the first line of defence in keeping out unwanted intruders.
