Tips from a neighborhood watch coordinator
Tip #1 Put your keys beside your bed at night
If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, press the panic
button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either
you either turn it off or the car battery dies. It's a security alarm system that you probably already
have and requires no installation! Test it. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house
and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key
fob chain. It works if you park in your driveway or garage. If someone is trying to break in and
your car alarm goes off.. even the neighbours will be alerted. Criminals won't stick around!
Tip #2 Hold your keys in your hand while walking alone…
The car alarm can work the same way there. In an emergency, such as a heart attack or a fall,
where you can't reach a phone, and no one can hear your voice…you can activate the car alarm
and alert others to the problem. It could save your life, avoid a crime, or sexual abuse.
This message is something that should really be shared with everyone. You could save a life by forwarding this email to your spouse, your children, your neighbours, your parents, …everyone you know.
