Going away for a long holiday weekend?

Give your house that lived in feeling while you’re gone, and consider these tips:

• Set interior lights (and maybe a radio or TV) to a timer.

• Set exterior lights to motion or dusk-to-dawn.

• Groom your lawn and property before leaving.

• Make sure video surveillance and smoke alarms are working properly. Replace batteries as needed.

• Check all the locks and deadbolts on your doors and windows. Replace old deadbolts that might be easy to kick in. For windows, insert dowel rods inside the window frame so they can’t be forced open.

• If you park vehicle(s) outside, remove valuables and LOCK THE DOORS.

• Tell a trusted neighbor so they know to watch out for suspicious activity at your house.

• Don’t broadcast you’re out of town on your voice mail, email, or on social media. Wait to post your vacation photos until after you return!

• Put a hold on deliveries and mail. You don’t want packages sitting on the doorstep!
