What to Take to Bed with You

Put your car keys beside  your  bed at night…

Tell your spouse,  your children, your neighbors, your parents, your Dr’s  office, the check-out girl at the market, everyone you  run across.  Put your car keys beside your bed at  night.
If you hear a noise outside your home or  someone trying to get in your house, just press the  panic button for your car.  The alarm will set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either  you turn it off or the car battery dies. 

This tip  came from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Next time  you come home for the night and you start to put your  keys away, think of this:  It’s a security alarm  system that you probably already have and requires no  installation.  Test it.  It will go off from  most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking  until your battery runs down or until you reset it with  the button on the key chain.  It works if you  park in your driveway or garage.   If your car  alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your  house, odds are the burglar/rapist won’t stick around.

After a few seconds all the neighbors will be  looking out their windows to see who is out there and  sure enough the criminal won’t want that.  And  remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in  a parking lot.  The alarm can work the same way  there.  This is   something that should really  be shared with everyone.  Maybe it could save a  life or a sexual abuse crime.

P.S. I  am sending and discussing this with everyone I know because I think it is  fantastic.  Would also be useful for any emergency,  such as a heart attack, where you can’t reach a phone.

Please pass this on even IF you’ve  read it before.. It’s a reminder.
