Parents! Tips to ensure the safety of your child when they are home alone after school

Parents! Are you worried about the safety of your child when they are home alone after school? Here are some tips to ensure they’re safety and give you peace of mind while you’re at work.
First, have them call once they have gotten home and locked the door behind them. Have them create a schedule so they aren’t just sitting at home watching television until you get there. Teach your child these points of contact and what to do in emergency situations:
  • how to dial 911
  • your address and phone number
  • the name, location, and phone number where your mom or dad works
  • the name, phone number, and address of a trusted neighbor
  • the name, phone number, and address of another emergency contact person, such as a grandparent or family friend
Arming your kid with this information will keep them safe and give you peace of mind.

What to do After a Break-in

Break-ins are scary, but you should know the proper precautions if one happens to you. Below are some steps that are extremely helpful and necessary if you come home and realize someone else has been in your residence—


Call the police and file a report.

Are you thinking, “Should I turn to the police?” The answer is yes, and it is the first thing you should do. Calling the police and filing a report puts the incident on record, which is necessary for both insurance claims and if you ever want to potentially find the thief(s) and retrieve your belongings.

Also do not touch anything in your home before the police arrive, as you may destroy key evidence the police need for finding and potentially prosecuting the burglar(s).

When the police arrive, make a complete list of all items that have been taken, including a thorough description and the approximate value of each.

Call the insurance company.

Whether you have homeowner’s or renter’s insurance, if you file a claim, there is a chance that you could recoup a decent amount for what was stolen. Call within 24 hours and make sure you have submitted all necessary information to the police, as the insurance company will need that information to process your claim.

View video footage of the break-in before cleaning up.
