  • Keep valuables and electronics out of sight.
  • Secure your passport.
  • Be sure to have working smoke alarms.
  • Know your home address.
  • Leave a key with a trusted friend or neighbour instead of hiding a spare key that could be found.
  • Do not leave spare keys or car keys readily available inside the house.
