BBB - David Smitherman with the Better Business Buearu joined us with a few pointers on keeping your home safe while you're away. Be careful about the vacation details you share via social media. Burglars can use posts on Twitter or Facebook to determine when you'll be away. Lock your doors even when you're gone for a brief amount of time. Two thirds (67%) of Americans surveyed for the Safety Data Index agree they do more to protect their homes when they are going away for a night than when they are just leaving for a few hours. Check your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors every month. Summer marks the beginning of hurricane season, and if a generator needs to be used in a power outage, a quick test of your monitored life safety devices can help keep your family safe from potentially dangerous fumes. Keep hedges and bushes around your home trimmed, so burglars don't have places to hide. For more information, please visit bbb.org
