There are many home security precautions you can take to protect your family and your property. With an awareness of what to do and not to do, it can make all the difference in the outcome of an emergency.
First, consider what your bare minimum is for a home’s safety. Consider an emergency bathroom in your house, if you have a small child. Make sure that there is a good supply of drinking water, with no leaks. Ideally, there should be one easy access to the kitchen, so that you can boil water to drink in the event of a fire.
In a large or substantial area, such as a building with more than a few floors, consider placing a portable latrine in a place of personal safety. A porch that overlooks the street lights, in case of emergency, could be a good spot. Your friend’s pool or pond could be a good place to carry out any toilet maintenance when you are on vacation.
Next, consider whether your children, especially your children under five, should be left unsupervised in a house with lots of small animals. This includes pets such as rabbits, skunks, hamsters, rats, gerbils, guinea pigs, mice, or even guinea pigs with bed bugs. For example, dogs with collars and as long as six inches around their necks and males with visible testicles would be the least of your concerns here. Many animal owners put large collapsible blankets or even short-haired dog houses in front of houses with animals. However, they also put this across the street from a house with a dog who has never shown signs of aggression towards people or pets. This type of precaution would be very useful if a dog were going into a home with a child who had never shown aggression against dogs before.
Children should not go near firewood or sawdust that has been left lying around, or around the burning embers of a fireplace. A child could be injured by wood dust.
