Sometimes the simplest things can turn out to make the difference in keeping safe, so here are a couple of suggestions.
Always keep your keys next to your bed at night, within reach. That way if you hear someone trying to get into your house you can push the alarm button on your key and your car alarm will go off. Also if there’s an emergency, fire, earthquake or whatever you have your keys, phone, wallet or purse right there even if you can’t get out of the house the normal route you usually use you still have what you need at hand. Note: You need to test the key ahead of time, from where it will be at night to see if it will work from that distance.
Another way to use your keys for safety is to hold onto it when you get in or out of the car and always LOOK AROUND, parking lots can be dangerous if you don’t pay attention. If you have already put your keys away and get approached, bang into a newer looking car or truck, or a couple of them and run. You will set off their alarms and hopefully scare off the perp. Please pass this on, to your friends and loved ones, who knows, it could save their lives!
I hope your 2013 is safe and happy! Hansi Riley
