safe at home

Your home is your family's safe haven. It's the place you return to each evening, leaving your workday worries - and the outside world - behind once you secure the front door.

While your walls provide a safe refuge within which you can weather the storms of daily life, ensuring your family's physical safety while inside and out requires some extra precautions.

These include creating a first-aid and disaster-survival kit, installing detectors to alert you to fire and other hazards, securing doors and windows against thieves, and battening down the hatches in anticipation of Mother Nature's fury.

These simple security measures will prepare your family and your home for whatever big and little surprises life and nature happen to throw your way.
