As the Easter holidays approach, families all over Australia are packing up and going on their annual camping trip. However, during this exciting time of relaxation, it’s vital that the safety and security of your home are not forgotten about.
Before leaving for your holiday, ensure that all windows, doors and gates are tightly locked and secured, any alarm systems installed are turned on, and that any valuables are kept safe and out of sight. As well as this, make sure your house does not look completely unoccupied, as this could prompt potential burglars to try and break-in. To do this, make sure to mow the lawn before you leave, cancel or redirect any newspaper and mail deliveries, or install a light on a timer, so the light comes on at certain times throughout the day. Additionally, notify immediate family, friends and neighbours that you are going on holiday.
