June is National Safety Month

June is National Safety MonthAs people hit the roads, head out on summer vacation travels and spend more time outdoors, no better time to remember the age old phrase “Safety First” than in June. At ASecureLife.com we aim to go out into the field and bring you the best of security to keep you and your family safe on and offline. Everything from the best home alarm systems to what antivirus or identity theft software is right for you. We provide in-depth articles for safety tips on the road, at home and online.

An organization with a related objective is the National Safety Council. They are a non-profit organization, whose mission is to save lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, in homes and communities and on the road through leadership, research, education and advocacy.

Through research they provide educational resources and training materials to build awareness and encourage safety best practices. And, throughout the past 100 years they’ve empowered individuals and companies to save lives, prepare for disasters and prevent health risks and injuries. To help promote this cause, NSC has named June as National Safety Month. According to NSC, an estimated 6 million lives have been saved over the past century due to the efforts of their safety movement.

Together for the next few weeks we hope to further amplify and exemplify how to live a more secure life. We will be sharing resources, examples and tips on what steps you can take to ensure you are more secure.

  1. The number of home burglaries traditionally spike in the summer months. I think that light timers and Fake TV are excellent solutions to deter burglars. Also, playing anti-theft home occupancy sounds MP3 or a CD in home while away is a great way to scare burglar that someone is in.

  2. Home safety is very important, worthy of a whole month of promoting. My partner and I have 3 small children all under the age of 10 and there are lots of hazards in the home that you don't think about that can cause risks everyday. I have a security camera and think most home alarm companies offer them – it's a great way to not only catch a thief, its a nice way to keep an eye on the kiddos when I'm upstairs  working or distracted doing laundry – using my iPhone I can periodically check in on them to make sure they are safe. I'm living a secure life! 

  3. My family and I like to travel quite a bit throughout the summer, so thank you for posting these tips and the link to the National Safety Council's website!

    The biggest tip I can offer for keeping your home safe while you're away is this: don't let the whole world know you're away. I know it's hard, but refrain from checking in, posting, tweeting, or otherwise announcing you're gone. Upload the photos of your getaway after you return!

  4. Ha, I had no idea there was a whole month dedicated to national safety but in this day and age, I guess it makes a lot of sense. Thanks for the safety tips to keep my family and home security up-to-date. It's tough these days with technology and privacy laws changing every time I turn around…
