After School Home Safety

Posted on September 9th, 2017 by Alert Protective

No parent likes to leave their child unattended at home, but with both parents working to pay the bills, sometimes it’s simply unavoidable. However, there are safeguards you can put in place to give you peace of mind in the workplace.

This is why security companies were designed. We are professionals in protecting your loved ones while you provide for them. We want you to spend more time enjoying life and less time worrying. To put your mind at ease, we have put together some tips about increasing after school home safety.

Educate Your Child

If your child is old enough to stay at home on their own, they are old enough to learn some simple steps to stay safe. Encourage them to keep all doors and windows locked. They should not answer the door unless someone coming was prearranged. Post a list of emergency contacts and show your child where it is. Talk with your child about which activities are allowed and which are not. Arrange projects to keep your child occupied until someone can come home.

If your child walks home from school, go over their route with them and make sure they don’t take any shortcuts. Educate your child about what to do if approached by a stranger. Be aware what time your child gets out of school and how long it takes them to get home, and have them call or text you when they arrive.
Additionally, it is important to make sure your home is a safe environment for your child. Lock up anything potentially dangerous to the child. Firearms, alcohols, and poisons should all be safely stored away.

Invest in Safety with a Security Company

There is no greater way to keep your child safe at home after school than investing in a security system. Security companies were created to design state of the art monitoring systems to protect your home.  At Alert Protective Services we monitor your security system and will alert you as soon as a break in occurs.

Don’t waste any more time worrying whether your child is safe at home. Utilize a security company to make sure your children are safe. To find out more about the wide array of protective measures we offer, check out the rest of our website.
