Great Idea: thought I'd pass it along

Put Your Car Keys Beside Your Bed


Put your car keys beside your bed at night. If you hear a noise outside
your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic
button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will
continue
to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies. This tip
came from a neighborhood watch coordinator.


Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys
away,
think of this: It's a security alarm system that you probably already
have
and requires no installation. Test it. It will go off from most
everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery
runs
down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain. It
works
if you park in your driveway or garage If your car alarm goes off when
someone is trying to break in your house, odds are the burglar or rapist
won't stick around... after a few second s all the neighbors will be
looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the
criminal won't want that. And remember to carry your keys while walking
to
your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there.....


This is something that should really be shared with everyone. Maybe it
could save a life or a sexual abuse crime.

P.S.
Would also be useful for any emergency, such as a heart attack, where
you
can't reach a phone.

That is a good idea. I can't do that. Our cars are old and do have security systems. Maybe that is why no one wants to steal them! LOL

I've heard about doing something similar.  If someone attacks you somewhere you should push the button and cause a scene with all the alarms.  Being a woman you cannot be careful enough.  Hope you are feeling better today, without dizziness and minimal pain.  Luv ya! : )
