Commercial Security Tips

Fires happen more often than people think in homes and businesses. There are some basic safety guidelines to follow if a fire breaks out:
• Devise and rehearse an escape plan with your family/co-workers
• Gather children and family and get out immediately
• Remember smoke is black so it will be difficult to see
• Stay Low – the heat can be very intense
• Prearrange a meeting place that is safely away from your home/business
• Don’t go back into the burning building
• Do not try and fight the fire
• Make sure you have a working smoke detector
• Make sure you, your family/co-workers know how to best escape from a burning

Cars are stolen every 19 seconds in the US and they disappear from everyday places: malls, streets, driveways, parking lots/garages, mass transit lots, car dealerships


To avoid your car being stolen at home or at work, take the following precautions:
• Never leave your car running when parked
• Never leave the keys in the ignition when the car is parked or when you leave it
• Always roll up the windows and lock the car – even when it’s at home
• Always park in busy, well-lighted area
• Never leave valuables in plain sight even if the car is locked. They should be out of sight or in the trunk. Stereo components and cell phones should all be removed and stored in a safe place when your car is unattended.
• If you park in a commercial garage or parking lot, just leave the ignition key with the attendant and make sure you do not leave identifying information in the car
