This is a crazy world that we live in. It seems like everyday you hear about another wild and totally unnecessary story on the news or through social media, where someone breaks into a house or a car. You can never be too safe with all of this stuff going on. So, that is why I have put together some quick tips for apartment residents to use to make sure your apartment and most importantly, you and your family, are safe.
There are a ton of different things that you can do to make your place safer, like changing the batteries in your smoke detectors, adding a dead bolt to your front door, and placing a broom handle in the sliding door, but that does not stop everything.
Other things you should start doing around your apartment include always locking your door. No matter where you are going, it only takes a second for something bad to happen, so even when you run down to grab a soda from the machine or need to put a quarter in the washing machine, always lock your door behind you.
