A FEW WAYS TO PROTECT YOUR HOME (Helpful information herein provided by Steve Holley, Holley Insurance 540-334-4225)
As you enter the third month of 2009, you've likely already set your New Years resolutions. I hope it's not to late to add one more to the list: home protection. I always do everything I can to keep my home safe and keep intruders out, and I'm sure you do the same. I've learned you can never do too much. Here are some simple tips I've picked up that you can employ to help make your house an uninviting target for thieves this year:
- Illuminate your home's entry points (doors and windows) and make sure the lights shine on the house, not in the eyes of any "observers."
- Don't give burglars hiding places. Trim bushes away from doors and windows, and at least two feet up from the ground.
- Participate in or organize a neighborhood watch program. A decal placed on a window near the entry points of your home will convey to burglars that they possibly are being watched.
These are just a few of the many ways you can help protect your home from intruders. They are simple steps that can make a big difference in protecting your home and your possessions. I don't want you to ever come home and find your house has been broken into and valuable possessions stolen.

P.S.: Remember, proper insurance protection requires constant vigilance. Did you know that 37% of unpaid claims result from perilous GAPS in insurance coverage? Be sure to let us know whenever changes arise in your life. Thanks.
