Home Safety Tips

Peace of Mind

Insurance coverage should give you peace of mind, you’ve done the planning and have your bases covered in case of an accident, loss or emergency. But having insurance shouldn’t be the end of your preparedness. Allied Trust Insurance has some helpful home safety tips to help safeguard your home, protect your assets and avoid risks.

  • Having a home inventory checklist  is a great first start to helping you assess your belongings and their locations inside your home.
  • Protect your home from fires by installing smoke detectors and checking the batteries at least once a year, having a working fire extinguisher at the ready, and never leave a burning candle unattended.
  • Make sure you store important documents, such as your insurance policy or mortgage papers, in a safe-deposit or fireproof box.
  • Have a disaster preparedness kit stored away in case of emergencies.
  • Protect your home from burglary with an up-to-date home alarm system and remember to always lock your doors and windows.
  • Have your home’s systems (heating/furnace, water heater, fireplace, etc) to mitigate malfunctions that may do damage to your home.
