  • Safety Awareness at Home

    Fences/Walls

    A high fence around the house with lockable gates, is much safer than a high wall due to the advantage of the improved visibility it provides.

    The primary aim of the fence is to make access/intrusion difficult and to allow dogs to move freely around the house.

    Ensure that your gates are locked at all times and that the keys cannot be reached easily and are not lying around uncontrolled.

    Security gates with sturdy locks in front of each outer door as well as burglar proofing covering all windows, are recommended.

    The following devices prevent easy access:

    Window bars Security doors Security gates Razor wire Additional locking devices on doors Strengthening of doors Peepholes in the doors Safety chains to doors Intercom system between the home and gate, front door or garage

  • Alarm Systems

    An alarm system, preferably connected to an armed response company, can act as an effective deterrent

    In the rural environment a siren/alarm on the roof that can be heard over a long distance and that can be activated by means of a switch/panic button in the house, is recommended

    A few switches/panic buttons in different rooms of the house should preferably be installed

    An alarm must also have the capability to warn the occupants of any intrusion into the house

    Examples of alarm systems:

    Mechanical and/or electrical (purchased types) Improvised systems Threaded tins Threaded pieces of iron Gravel on window panes, pathways or around the home Obstacles that can make a noise when moved Biological Systems: Dogs Geese Ostriches

  • Security Lights

    Security lights on the outside of the house improve the physical protection of a house, farm or smallholding. The lights must be directed away from the house and must allow the occupants to use the windows without being observed from outside. Be aware of possible shadows and blind spots.

  • Access and Key Control

    Do not allow strangers on your premises or in your house without having properly identifying the person, especially at night. Implement proper key control measures. Identify keys by means of codes instead of indicating in writing on labels to which gate/door access can be gained. Keys to the safe must be kept on the person. Never hide any keys in traditional places, such as in pot plants or under doormats. Keys in the keyhole on the inside of the front or back door should be turned to avoid easy removal. Never allow strangers to handle keys or look at key numbers. Change locks when keys are lost. Insert barring devices in door locks. Remove keys from doors when leaving.
  • Communication

    There should be two systems for alternative back up: Telephone Cellular phone Have the telephone installed where it is easily accessible from anywhere in the house. Inform your children not to give an indication that adult supervision is not available when they answer the phone.
