This week, Monty Montgomery, Atlas Operations Manager, highlights two behaviours which could have detrimental consequences where safety is concerned – bad habits and negligence.
? Do you bypass any zones on your alarm system?
? Do you regularly arm your alarm?
? How old is your alarm system?
? Do you have a remote panic button?
Monty urges readers to take their lifelines seriously and to ensure that you have sufficient security coverage.
To recap the past long weekend, Monty reports that very little losses were suffered due to good response times. In many cases, what could have been major invasions, ended up in attempted incidents. He encourages readers to keep a secure grip on their properties and continue to assist with the fight against crime.
Information sharing is key and Monty is very happy with all neighbourhoods who actively participate in sharing suspicious information. Criminals find it more difficult to operate under these additional watchful eyes.
He reminds readers to ensure that Atlas Security has access to enter your property. Repeatedly Monty experiences incidents where the lack of access spoils a good response time when our response officers are prevented from entering a property quick enough. It is vital for our armed response officers to be able to check the front and back of your property. Click here to read more. Contact Atlas Security on 041 401 2222 or email email@example.com to discuss options for access to your property today.
Armed robberies are still being executed much too frequently. Be alert and safe while shopping to avoid being caught up in a robbery. Also be aware of being robbed of your possessions while out and about. Look around. If you see anything suspicious, rather abort your shopping trip.
The school holidays are here and Monty reminds families to stay safe while at home or away on holiday. When children staying at home, enure that they know and follow the basic safety steps to keep them safe. Issue them with a remote panic button and brief them to lock up and not to open the door for anyone. Click here to read more. If you’re going away, click here to see if you have ticked all the boxes before leaving.
Lastly, Spring has sprung which means there will be an increase in outdoor activities and more open windows and doors. Whatever you’ve got planned; always remember to put safety first. We wish everyone a safe holiday and all the best for the last quarter of 2018.
Stay safe and rest assured that your world is safe in Atlas’ hands.
