At home



• Use safety chains or lock all outside doors when you are at home but leave the keys in the locks in case you need to get out in a hurry.

• If you live in a flat or a house with an outside light, use it.

• If you are female and in doubt about a visitor, do not let him or her in.

• If you have a telephone answering machine, do not say 'I am not available', as this indicates a single occupant. It is better to say 'No one is available to take your call'.

• Close and lock all windows and outside doors whenever you go out.

• When you go out on dark nights and mornings leave a table lamp or room light on to make the place look occupied.

• If you have gas appliances in your home, make sure that they are checked annually by a professional to safeguard against carbon monoxide poisoning. If you are unsure about the safety of your gas appliances, ask your landlord or landlady to have them checked and use a carbon monoxide detector, which can be bought in hardware shops and some petrol stations.

• Whenever you go out, turn off gas and electrical appliances, such as the cooker, television, iron, etc. (but not refrigerator).
