Protecting Your Lake Oswego Home Over The Holidays

How to Protect Your Home While You’re Gone

The holiday season is prime time for thieves looking for an easy opportunity to break into your home. Gingerbread_HouseWhile you’re enjoying the hustle and bustle of this festive period, a thief could be taking a leisurely stroll through your home in search of valuables. Keep your home safe and secure over the holidays with these five thoughtful tips.

  • Alert the Neighbors — Let the neighbors you’re friendly with know about your travel plans and ask them to watch for any suspicious activity. Arrange for someone you trust to enter your home every couple of days to ensure everything’s running smoothly.
  • Put the Post Office on Pause — Temporarily suspend mail and newspaper delivery services while you’re away. (Or ask a neighbor to collect them for you.) Nothing signals that a home is unoccupied like a week’s worth of newspapers at the doorstep.
  • Keep Gifts Under Wraps — Don’t advertise what you’ve bought over the holiday season via social media, and ensure gifts and valuables aren’t visible from the street or at the trash. Many a holiday has been ruined by thieves making off with all the presents carefully chosen for friends and family.
  • Secure All Entry Points — Ensure all doors and windows in your home have functioning locks that properly fasten. Be sure to remove any spare keys you may have hidden near your door.
  • Install a Security System — A professional security system gives you peace of mind while you’re away. Modern systems often include remote video monitoring that allows you to check in on your home from wherever you are.

All the above ensures that you, your family and your home will be protected leaving you time to enjoy your holidays.

Lake Oswego Code RED Emergency Notification

The City of Portland recently did a reverse phone notification letting residents know of a pending emergency situation. I wondered how they knew the phone numbers of everyone in the city’s limit.

I’ve also wondered about my own town Lake Oswego where I read yesterday a similar notification was sent to neighbors near a crime scene.

The City of Lake Oswego I don’t believe has my cell phone number. Like many, I no longer have a landline and I suspect many of you don’t either.

Do you want to be notified of an emergency in your neighborhood?

Code RED – Emergency Notification

Lake Oswego Real Estate Code RED Emergency Notification.allaboutlakeoswegorealestate.com

Code RED, the City of Lake Oswego’s emergency notification system, was recently improved, now providing City officials the ability to quickly deliver emergency notification messages via telephone, email, and text message citywide at a rate of 1,000 calls per minute.

Code RED is used for significant emergencies such as floods, earthquakes, bomb threats, gas leaks, missing children or elderly, and electrical outages.

>>>Register HERE for Code RED.

If you have switched from traditional phone service to any of the newer digital products, including those obtained through cable providers, you must register if you want to be notified by the Code RED. I used the link posted here to register for Code RED myself. Have you already registered?
