Home Safety Precautions

Posted by DEBING GAN on

According to scholars’ research and case studies, crimes mostly occur in the "home" that everyone considers the safest haven, where oneself and family members are living at home, such as taking out the garbage, taking an elevator, commuting to and from get off work, or accidental incidents (renting a house) All need to be more vigilant, and a safe home life is all about the psychological full preparation of "I would rather do more beforehand, so as not to be sad afterwards."

Home safety rules

When returning home:

Before arriving at your home, pay attention to whether you are being followed or watched. If you find it suspicious, do not return home immediately. You should borrow the phone from nearby homes or a 24-hour business to contact your family and ask for help.
When going up and down the elevator should stand beside the control button to facilitate immediate response.
Pay attention to suspicious signs near your home, such as signs, colors or spray paint on the door of your home, call the police immediately.
At home:

Develop the habit of closing the door at will.
When you are alone at home, it is only possible not to answer the door casually, open the door, order delivery, or find someone to fix it.
Always check whether the doors and windows of your home have been damaged by others, and beware of late-night thief sneaking into your home. If you find a thief sneaking in, pretend to be asleep or hide yourself from being discovered, and seek self-protection first.
Install special safety chain locks for doors and windows (the door bolts should also be locked in the sleeping room at night). Pay attention to whether the door and window brackets are safe and firm.
If your residence is remote, there is often no one at home, valuables are in your home, or the neighbouring area is often stolen, you should consider buying appropriate anti-theft equipment! When buying, the most important thing is to ensure that the quality is good, and don't forget to test and repair regularly to maximize the effect.
Do not invite unfamiliar friends to your home at will, so as not to lead wolves into the house; or at random to play at the homes of friends who have met for the first time or only have a few faces, and get trapped by the other party without realizing it.
When a stranger borrowed the phone, he said it happened that the phone was broken and refused.
When an outsider rings the wrong doorbell or calls the wrong number, be alert and do not open the door.
The door to the apartment building should be closed at any time to prevent strangers from following in.
Important passbooks and seals should be placed separately.
When the family is out:

It is best to notify the newspapers, magazines, and milk that you subscribe to stop delivering when you go out for many days, and ask your neighbors to collect the mail packages.
Time switch equipment is often used to create an illusion that someone is at home.
Don't easily disclose outgoing information to unrelated people.
When going out, contact the community guards and building administrators more often.
Dial 11 to apply for residential patrol service.
When renting:

Before renting the house, it is best to have family members or friends accompany you. If you go alone, you must pay attention to the entrance and exit of the door, and never close the door.
It is best to understand the cultural environment, public security situation and the landlord’s character in the area around the house before signing a contract.
Observe whether there are sufficient street lights in the rental/residential environment, and the danger of entering and exiting or going back and forth at night.
Renting houses must ask the landlord to replace the new locks and fully install door bolts and chains, iron doors and iron windows.
If you own a house for rent, you must pay attention to whether the tenant who comes to rent is strange and whether it is renting for himself, so as to avoid illegal people pretending to be tenants and lead wolves into the room.
Methods of handling theft cases:

When facing a thief, be calm and show no intention of confrontation. Quickly leave the scene or take a favorable position to protect yourself at any time according to the situation, so as to avoid injury and call the police as soon as possible. Keep the scene so that the police can fully collect evidence.
Pay more attention to and record the characteristics of the gangster-height, body shape, age, accent, scars, etc., so that you can report the crime in the future and identify it.
You must be calm before and after the event, and avoid using words and actions to stimulate the gangsters and cause frontal conflict.
