Holiday Safety Tips for San Antonio Residents

Keep Children Safe

Everywhere you go, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Although the holidays are among many people’s favorite time of year, home invasions and drunk driving could hamper your holiday fun. Keep your holiday cheer by following the safety guidelines from your friends and neighbors at McRae Bail Bonds.

How to Keep Your San Antonio Holiday Season Safe!

Don’t Drink and Drive During the Holidays – If mom’s eggnog has you feeling warm and fuzzy, it may be the alcohol in her unique concoction. According to the Centers for Disease Control, roughly thirty people die from alcohol-related drinking and driving accidents every day in the United States. Don’t add to this statistic during the most beautiful time of the year! Always choose safety first. Call a taxi or safe ride home if your loved ones cannot help you get home.

Lock Your Doors for House & Car – Even though you and your loved ones feel the season’s warm and cozy glow, criminals will feel the urge to rip off your possessions while you’re not home. Avoid being robbed by locking all doors and windows, ensuring that dark areas around your property are well-lit, and ensuring your gifts aren’t visible from the main windows. Be aware of strange people in your neighborhood, posing as couriers or delivery people who may be thieves planning to ransack your home.

Keep Children Close While Holiday Shopping – Who would ever deny the joys of shopping for Christmas gifts? This popular tradition, albeit fun, does present safety challenges for children. While holiday shopping with your family, designate a meeting spot for your children to reconnect with you or another family member if you get separated. If your child gets lost, teach them their full name, address, and telephone number, as well as how to ask for help from police and store security officers.

Don’t Be a Target for Thieves – Avoid falling victim to heartless thieves and muggers by shopping with a friend or family member, and only use ATMs in the daytime or a well-lit area. Remember to stay aware of your surroundings and never overload yourself with so many shopping bags and packages that you look vulnerable to potential thieves.
