How to make your home a safer place
Make sure your smoke detectors are working
If you burn something in the kitchen and your smoke detector doesn’t make a racket, you have a problem. If they are battery-operated, you need to change the batteries. Smoke detectors can save your life and give you a warning if a fire erupts in your home.
Earthquake-proof your home
Santa Clarita is near two fault lines, and there are things you can do to help minimize earthquake damage in your home and to yourself. Some simple sets can minimize damage. Strap heavy appliances to the walls and heavy furniture as well. Place heavy items on shelves close to the floor and store glassware in closed cabinets. Make sure light fixtures are attached to beams and attach things on the walls with extra security.
Add a home security system
These days, you can add a DIY home security system for a very minimal expense. The setup is simple, and they are easy to operate. Many can be controlled by your smartphone.
Use your door and window locks
Exterior doors and windows come with locks, but they don’t do you much good unless you use them. Make sure all your windows, patio doors, and other doors are locked, not only when you go out, but when you are in as well.
