Follow these steps toward restored peace of mind
You have come home to find your home burglarized. Valuables are missing, your house is ransacked – so what do you do next? First, call the police. If you were not home when the break-in occurred, wait outside in your car or at the home of a neighbor. Once the police arrive, they will do a thorough check to make sure no one is still inside your house. Fill out a police report, which you will need if you have a homeowners policy in order to file an insurance claim.
After a traumatic incident like a home invasion, homeowners are usually considering a number of different ways they can protect themselves and their families. Oftentimes they entertain the thought of getting a vicious guard dog or even purchasing a gun or firearm for protection.
If your home is not equipped with a home security system, whether you have experienced a break-in or not, it is a good idea to install one for added protection. In addition to burglary, a home security system can help protect against threats like fire, carbon monoxide, flooding, freezing and more. You will receive 24-hour monitoring from a team of security specialists who can call for help on your behalf if an emergency ever occurs at your home and you are unable to do so yourself. A dog cannot do that.
Consider your options and research the different home security providers in your area before choosing a company that meets all of your home security needs.
