Protecting Your Home

Posted on : April 12, 2017 Updated on : April 12, 2017 in: Tips, Website .

Tips to help make your home more secure, and a bit about what the burglars don't like.

Most burglars are amateur criminals and that is why they look for easy targets. To most burglars, it is how easy it is to break in, not what is inside, that determines which building they rob. Once burglars realize homes are being locked and watched, they will move on to easier targets.

I saw this documentary at a friend’s house while on my recent travels. His daughter lives in New Zealand and experienced these earthquakes.  It is extraordinary. I would like to buy it and show it as part of my CERT continuing education. This link shows 12 minutes from the movie which is about 100 minutes long. It is entitled WHEN A CITY FALLS.
