I saw am article that asked 8 questions about protecting your family. Protecting the home and family is something we all have thought about but is something that needs to be revisited more often than annually IMO. Here are the questions and the link to the source of the questions below: 1: Are You Doing a Good Job of Deterring People Who May Want to Do Harm to Your Family? 2: Do You Have a System in Place to Detect When Your Family Actually Needs Protecting? 3: Are the Rooms in Your Home Strategically Located so you’ll Actually Have a Chance of Protecting Your Loved Ones? 4: Do You Have a Backup Method of Calling for Help in an Emergency? 5: Do You Have the Necessary Gear to Protect Your Family from a Threat? 6: Would You Really Be Proficient in a Life-Threatening Situation with Your Personal Protection Gear? 7: Do You Have a Safe Place in Your Home for Your Family to Hide In? 8: Do You Have a Way of Escaping to a Safer Place? Quick Test to See if You Can Really Protect Your Family Do you see any areas that need to be covered/questioned that were not in the questions above? I know we go over safety of family and home quite a bit but I have learned much from my fellow monkeys. What about the attic as a hiding place? Someone suggested it as a good place to hide if the house was invaded. I understand their reasoning but I cannot get past the thought of being trapped in case I need to leave. I do have an issue with this because our house is built the way it is. 3: Are the Rooms in Your Home Strategically Located so you’ll Actually Have a Chance of Protecting Your Loved Ones? The only way I could do this is to remodel and I do not want to do that. Or am I reading that wrong?
