What to do During a Break-In

Posted on July 24th, 2017 by Alert Protective

Unfortunately, without the proper preventative measures, your home could be invaded. Although many burglars enter a home without violent ambitions, some may take violent measures to protect their identities and avoid the police. Having a plan in this scenario could save your life! If you believe an intruder has entered your home while you are there, this is what you should do:


Call 911

If you are ever afraid that an intruder has entered your home, call 911 immediately. Even if the police arrive and find no one is there, at least you have been given solace and can comfortably return to your activities.


Don’t Leave Your Room

If you are certain there is an intruder in your home, do not leave your room. If you try and investigate the situation on your own, the intruder will either quickly escape or become violent. It is a bad idea to put yourself in that dangerous situation, which is why you should wait and have professionals take care of it.


Encountering the Intruder

In the worst-case scenario, your intruder may confront you. How you behave in the first 30 seconds can set the tone for what follows. Be sure to keep your voice as normal as you can, avoid direct eye contact, and be cooperative to keep yourself as safe as possible. In most scenarios, an intruder will be surprised when confronted and flee your home before any trouble arises.
