Keep your home safe and secure. Here are some salient items to go through:
Check your stove
Make sure that the gas tank is connected to your stove via a secure cable. Check whether both ends may be loose, and make it a habit every time you replace your gas tank.
Plugs and Circuit Box
Always remember to unplug appliances and other electronics when not in use. Check your circuit box every so often.
Doors and Windows
Take account of various forms of ingress and egress to and from the home, such as the attic windows or basement hatches, to ensure that all access points are secured at all times, especially when you’re not around.
Fire and Burglar Alarms
Check whether your home alarm systems have working batteries within them. Perform alarm tests several times throughout the year.
Childproof your Home
Keep potentially harmful items out of your children’s reach. Make it a habit to put knives and scissors back in their proper place after every use. Don’t place heavy or breakable items where kids can knock them over.
Ensure that your emergency kits are always stocked or replenished. Keep a first aid kit, as well as an emergency storm or earthquake kit, handy at all times. Rechargeable torches, sirens, and radios should also be made available.
Spare Parts and Reserves
Set aside a few extra light bulbs, extension cords, transformer plugs, and other essential home implements ready and available at all times.
