Dark Night Safety Tips

Now the clocks have gone back the nights are starting to get dark earlier.

Here are some top tips to keep yourself safe whilst at home.

  • Only answer the door to someone you are expecting.
  • Use peep holes or if possible, check through windows to see who is at your door.
  • Always use the door chain when answering the door to any caller.
  • Check identification details by phoning the genuine telephone number from the telephone book or website, not the telephone number on the ID card.
  • Keep all doors and windows locked.
  • Never let anyone in your house unless it is someone you know and trust.
  • Get outside lights fitted to give a better view of anyone who may be on your doorstep.
  • If in doubt or worried do not let anyone in to your house.
