The holidays are here in McKinney, TX and for many families that means you are busier than ever! It’s easy to get swept away decorating your McKinney home for the holidays or preparing your travel plans. So, we’ve complied a few simple tips to keep your house safe during all the hustle and bustle.

Get To Know Your Neighbors
The holidays are a great time to get to know your neighbors. If you haven’t done so already, or you are new to living in McKinney, stroll over and introduce yourself! Don’t be limited to next-door meet-and-greets; include neighbors across the street and behind you as well. If traveling for the holidays, ask your neighbor to keep an eye out for suspicious activities. This will help build friendships and keep our Craig Ranch community safe!

Lock It Up
Take extra caution this holiday season to ensure that your McKinney home is safe and secure. Lock windows and doors when leaving as an extra precaution. It’s also a good idea to lock up while you’re inside. Remind children not to answer the door for people they do not recognize, as there can be a lot of door-to-door solicitations this time of year!

Be Discrete
Try to avoid keeping gifts or valuable objects near windows, where they are in plain view from the street. Be sure to also close the blinds when you are not home. Consider setting a timer on your indoor and outdoor lights to give the illusion that you’re home, even if you’re not.
