Put Your Keys Beside Your Bed at Night

This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator:

Put your car keys beside your bed at night. If you hear a noise outside your home or someone is trying to get in your house 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.

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 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 won't stick around...


Important Information When Calling 911: Wireless or cellular telephone calls made to "911" are answered by the New York State Police who in turn ask the caller for their specific location and connect the caller to the local Police Department responsible for that area. This causes a slight delay in dispatching help to a location and therefore when possible use a wired home phone and not a cell phone to call "911". If you use a cell phone to call the Yonkers Police Department for an emergency dial: 377-7777.
