There has been an increase in the number of robberies in your area. You have been asked to give a speech at your school assembly on how to defend your homes from burglars. You have make the following notes :
- Ensure that all doors, windows and gates are locked before you go to sleep or before you leave the house.
- Have additional security devices like an alarm, a peep hole, safety-chain catch and good padlocks.
- Avoid keeping too much money or valuables in your house.
- If you are going on a holiday, stop the delivery of newspapers.
Good morning to our principal, senior assistants, teachers and friends. Today, I wish to give a talk on how to ensure the safety of our homes and prevent housebreaking.
Statistics provided by the Police Department revealed that cases of house-breaking had soared last year compared to the previous years. Our lackadaisical attitude towards home security has resulted in burglars gaining easy entry to our homes.
How can we ensure the safety of our homes? First of all, ensure that all doors, windows and gates are locked before we go to sleep or before we leave our homes. Sometimes we leave our grilles ajar and sometimes we leave our door keys dangling from the lock.
We should have additional security devices like an alarm, a peep hole, safety-chain latch and good padlocks. Statistics reveal that installing a burglar’s alarm is the best investment for home security. Having a peep hole and safety-chain latch will prevent unwelcome guests from entering your home.
In addition, we should avoid keeping too much money or valuables in the house. Keeping them in a bank is always a better guarantee for the safety of our valuables.
If you are planning to go on a holiday then make sure you halt the delivery of newspapers so that it does not seem obvious that there is nobody at home.
So my dear friends, I hope that we will pay attention to these preventive measures that we often overlook. Remember “Prevention is better than cure”. Thank you.
