Access Control Security Shares Safety Tips on How to Prevent Home Invasions

Access Control Security announces home and family safety tips and a plan on how to prevent home burglaries and defend against invasions in new security video.

Los Angeles, United States - February 27, 2020 /PressCable/ —

According to FBI statistics, there are over 1 million home break-ins in the U.S. every year. Firearms and other weapons are used in 50% of those invasions.

Access Control Security (ACS) advisor Bobby Marchesso and law enforcement officer Chris Cano recently shared tips on how to prevent a residential burglary and what to do if a break-in occurs while residents are home.

“It’s important for homeowners to know how to best protect themselves and their loved ones from these perennial risks,” says Marchesso. “Robbers look for easy targets. They typically want to get in, steal cash, credit cards and jewelry and get out quickly.”

" target="_blank">home invasion protection tips regarding home safety and home robbery prevention::

1) Have a security company install cameras with live monitoring and alarms to help keep property secure. If the security service sees something suspicious through the live feed, it will immediately call police or alert its patrolling officers to respond. No two homes are the same. It’s best to call in the experts to recommend the right home defense plan to ensure home safety and family security.

2) Clear shrubs from around windows and doors so robbers can be easily seen if trying to break in. Keep a radio or TV on while you’re away. Burglars won’t know for sure if someone is home. Most don’t want to take the chance that they’ll come face-to-face with the homeowner.

3) Fortify all entry points—door, windows, garage entrances–with deadbolt and sliding window locks. Make it a habit to check locks before leaving the house.

4) Homeowners shouldn’t ever let their guard down. Aggressive invaders dressed in delivery or postal service uniforms can force their way inside. Don’t open the door for anyone unless you know it’s 100% safe.

5) Don’t broadcast your travel plans on social media. Pictures of you on vacation give would-be robbers the information they need to break in without fear of being seen.

6) Home invasion security training is important. Practice home invasion protection drills with family members so everyone knows what to do in the worst-case scenario–where to hide and how to escape. These drills are helpful in case of fire and other emergencies as well.

7) If robbers break in while homeowners are present and there is no option for escape, give robbers what they want. No amount of cash or jewelry is more important than family safety. Fight back only if you or your kids’ safety is at risk.

8) Call the police the minute thieves leave. Police will ask questions about the assailants, what they stole, their vehicles and the direction they went. Try to remember as many details about the robbery as possible.

3-2-1-Cookoff! Astronauts to bake cookies with new test oven

Apr 7, 2020

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Forget reheated, freeze-dried space grub. Astronauts are about to get a new test oven for baking chocolate chip cookies from scratch. The next delivery to the International Space Station — scheduled for liftoff this weekend — includes the Zero G Oven. Chocolate chip cookie dough is already up there, waiting to pop into this small electric oven designed for zero gravity. Sample cookies baked just this week are also launching from Virginia on Northrop Grumman's Cygnus capsule, for the six station astronauts. The experiment explores the possibility of making freshly baked items for space travelers. With...

NASA moves up 1st all-female spacewalk to fix power unit

Apr 7, 2020

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — NASA has moved up the first all-female spacewalk to this week because of a power system failure at the International Space Station. Astronauts Christina Koch (cook) and Jessica Meir (mere) will now venture out Thursday or Friday, instead of next Monday. A battery power controller failed over the weekend, prompting the change. The women will replace the broken component, rather than install new batteries, which was their original job. Last week, astronauts conducted two spacewalks to replace old space station batteries. They have three more spacewalks to go to finish the battery work. A battery-swapping spacewalk...

Museum of the Bible quietly replaces questioned artifact

Apr 7, 2020

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Museum of the Bible in Washington quietly replaced an artifact purported to be one of a handful of miniature Bibles that a NASA astronaut carried to the moon in 1971 after an expert questioned its authenticity. The move follows an announcement last year that at least five of 16 Dead Sea Scroll fragments that had been on display at the museum were found to be apparent fakes. The museum replaced the original microfilm Bible with one that was donated by an Oklahoma woman who wrote a book about the Apollo Prayer League, which arranged for Apollo...

No Deal: Auto workers strike against GM in contract dispute

Apr 7, 2020

DETROIT — More than 49,000 members of the United Auto Workers walked off General Motors factory floors or set up picket lines early Monday as contract talks with the company deteriorated into a strike. Workers shut down 33 manufacturing plants in nine states across the U.S., as well as 22 parts distribution warehouses. It wasn't clear how long the walkout would last, with the union saying GM has budged little in months of talks while GM said it made substantial offers including higher wages and factory investments. It's the first national strike by the union since a two-day walkout in...

Union votes to strike at General Motors' US plants

Apr 7, 2020

DETROIT — The United Auto Workers union announced Sunday that its roughly 49,000 workers at General Motors plants in the U.S. would go on strike just before midnight because contentious talks on a new contract had broken down. About 200 plant-level union leaders voted unanimously in favor of a walkout during a meeting Sunday morning in Detroit. Union leaders said the sides were still far apart on several major issues and they apparently weren't swayed by a GM offer to make new products at or near two of the four plants it had been planning to close, according to someone...
