Vacationers: Protect Your Assets Using Online and Offline Methods

July and August are target months for residential break-ins– Nothing is more exciting than packing and getting ready for that much needed summer vacation to “get away from it all.”  Unfortunately, some vacationers will find “it all” no longer there when they return home. The FBI warns that July and August are the worst months for home break-ins. According to the Insurance Information Institute, more than 2.15 million burglaries occur each year and more than 65 percent of them are residential break-ins. Before taking that well-deserved trip, AAA South Dakota advises travelers to prepare their homes against burglary.
“Summer vacation plans can quickly turn into a disaster for travelers who fail to execute a plan to protect their home while they are away,” warned Marilyn Buskohl, spokeswoman for AAA South Dakota. “AAA advises homeowners to safeguard all property while away from home, including not posting detailed status updates online in social media forums and making their homes as burglar-proof as possible.”
