Are you concerned about the amount of danger that you see on the news each evening? Perhaps there has been mischief in your neighborhood that has escalated to more serious threats. If you have a home and a family, you are more than likely even more concerned for the safety you provide for those you love. From being a great part of the community to establishing a safe room with bullet resistant doors, here are some ideas that might help you to feel that you and your family are safe in your home.
Be A Part Of The Community - While you probably don't want to be part of a vigilante group, you more than likely want to be more vigilant. Hopefully, you have already established yourself as a person and a family that others can trust. Consider getting to know your neighbors well so that you can count on each other. For example, if you are going out of town, knowing your neighbors will make it easier for you to ask them to keep an eye on your home while you are away.
Think of having a system where neighbors report suspicious behavior to each other. For example, if you notice unfamiliar vehicles scouting the area, it might just be a family looking at the neighborhood with the intent to purchase a house in the future. However, the vehicle might also be up to no good, selecting homes to burglarize.
Establish A Safe Room - You don't have to be a millionaire to establish a place of safety in your home. Think of designating one room of your house where you and your family members would go if you knew danger was at hand. Start by ordering bullet resistant doors. They are more than likely more affordable than you expected them to be. Even though you have to spend money on them, having the peace of mind that nobody can penetrate the doors will probably bring you peace of mind.
A company that specializes in bullet-resistant doors will be happy to come to your house to take measurements and to install the door for you. Make sure your safe room has an area where you can access water and food, perhaps buying a small refrigerator for the room. One idea is to select a bedroom that has a bathroom as part of the design of the bedroom area.
