Before you Leave Doors and windows are locked. Set the alarm. Candles and fireplace are out. Close your curtains!
Drive Safely First things first: SLOW DOWN!! SPEED KILLS! If you don’t believe me, just ask and I’ll tell you again…
So far, so good… Keep your doors locked and windows up. Don’t stop for strangers Avoid conflict with other drivers. Keep your cell phone handy. WEAR YOUR SEAT BELT! It saves lives.
Car Crash? Don’t Panic! Call the Police every time. Don’t just jump out make sure you’re okay first. Other cars are on the road. Other driver might be upset. Take pictures or video! Write down license plates.
Park near the lights. If you come out after dark you’ll be glad you did. Park near well traveled areas and close to the doors. Don’t just jump out…look around first. If it doesn’t look or feel right, it’s probably not. Use your intuition, you’ll be surprised how often it’s correct. You finally got there, now what?
Hide your belongings and gifts! The Grinch is always looking to ruin your Christmas. If he can’t see those expensive things in your car, he just might go elsewhere.
STOP!STOP! Where is your friend? It has to be more fun shopping with a friend, isn’t it? Besides, if you have little ones around, it might be better to have an extra pair of hands, ears and eyes.
Is that YOUR purse(aka; mystery grab bag) left unattended in the shopping cart?? Where is my wallet? Christmas is my favorite time of Year… Thieves Love it too. Keep it with you!
Be careful of “Identity Pirates” Keep track of your purse and wallet when making a purchase. Cover them or hide them so the person behind you can’t see your personal information. This includes anything with your address. You wouldn’t want an uninvited guest in your home while you are away shopping!!
Other safety tips; Never give out personal or financial information over the phone. Don’t let strangers into your house. Keep cars and house locked when at home. SMOKE ALARMS!!!
