Happy Thanksgiving!

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

Just a few convenient travel and Thanksgiving safety tips to keep your family and home safe for the holidays:

* Don’t post Thanksgiving travel plans on Facebook or Twitter letting people know that you will be out of town; review your security settings.

* Make sure to have all mail, newspapers, and deliveries stopped or picked up by a neighbor, friend or relative

* Secure all windows, including those upstairs.

* Use timers to operate lights.


* Don't leave valuables in open view in your car.

* Always park in well-lit areas and park close to the entrance of the store or mall.

* Don’t talk on a cell phone when walking to and from your vehicle. Keep your full attention on your surroundings.

* Don’t electronically unlock your vehicle until you are within door opening distance. This helps stop a thief from getting into the car and waiting to strike when you least expect it.

* If you are ready to leave the mall and feel uneasy about entering the parking lot or garage by yourself, stay in the mall and ask for a security escort.

One final thought – please DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE… No one wants to lose a loved one during the holidays! Please be safe and designate a driver or call a cab.
