Home Invasion

Home invasion can conjur up all sorts of uncomfortable thoughts when one takes the time to think about it.  A home invasion can put the lives of you and your family at risk.  It is important to be aware of the following.

  • Thugs will try to gain access to your home using ruses such as “my car broke down may I use your phone.”  Do not grant them access.  Another ruse is impersonating law enforcement; again do not grant them access.  If they do not have proper and verifiable identification and a warrant they should not be allowed access to your home.
  • Allowing strangers access to your home in this day and age is reckless.  Don’t do it.
  • Crooks will stoop to any level to gain access; you need to be alert, situationally aware and ready.
  • Do not grant access to plumbers, electricians, etc., that you did not call.  Don’t allow workmen that you did call unattended access.
  • Closed circuit TV cameras work well and allow you to monitor your property.
  • Remember anyone can buy a fake utility sign or a fake landscaping sign.  If you did not specifically call them to come over and work on your property; do not allow them access to your home.
  • Remember home invasions don’t always begin at the front door.  You must protect the backdoor, windows and any other points of entrance and exit. 
  • Trust your gut instincts.  If something feels wrong then it most likely is wrong.
  • Be smart and stay safe.

You can see all 5 of my post apocalyptic fiction books, 2 of my zombie fiction books and 1 of my horror fiction books on the left side of my blog page.  Go ahead; take a chance and purchase one or more over at Amazon.com.  They are really quite interesting to read if I do say so myself and they also make excellent gifts 🙂
