This was passed on to me by a friend...
Put your car keys beside your bed at night!
Does your car have an alarm? If yes, put your car keys beside your bed at night.
If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the alarm button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and will continue to sound until either you turn it off or it stops on its own after a specific length of time. This tip came from a Neighbourhood Watch coordinator. Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this: it's a security alarm system that you may already have and requires no installation. Test it. It will go off from most rooms inside your. It works if you park in your driveway or garage. If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your house, odds are the burglar/rapist won't stick around. After a few seconds, all the neighbours will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and the criminal won't want that.
And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there. This is something that should really be shared with everyone. Maybe it could save a life or prevent a sexual abuse crime.
This would also be useful for any emergency, such as a heart attack, where you can't reach a phone. My Mom has suggested to my Dad that he carry his car keys with him in case he falls outside and she doesn't hear him. If he activates the car alarm, she'll know there's a problem.
Share this with all the people in your life. Tell your spouse, your children, your parents, your neighbours, your Dr.'s office, the check-out person at the market, everyone in your sphere of influence.
