December – Peak Season for Candle and Chimney Fires

Stay Safe – at Home The holiday season is upon us; the days are getting shorter and the evenings colder and darker and we light up our candle sticks and fire places while enjoying the warmth indoor. Unfortunately, the winter is also the season for candle and chimney fires. On average, 42 home candle fires are reported every day with December being the peak time of the year. 20% of candle fires are caused by unattended or abandoned candles, so never leave a lit candle where you can’t see it, and never let children play with candles and matches.

Before you light up the fireplace, make sure your chimney has been inspected and cleaned by a certified chimney specialist, and make sure that the area surrounding the fireplace is free from any flammable materials. Always use a metal mesh screen with fireplaces that do not have a glass door, and only use seasoned hardwood. Also check your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors to make sure they are in full working order.

Stay Safe – and Away Burglaries are on the rise in the San Francisco Bay Area. The average number of residential burglaries is up nearly 22% from 2011 with Palo Alto at 63%, closely followed by Daly City at 63%, and San Jose and Sunnyvale at 39% and 38%, respectively.

If you plan on going away for any length of time during the holidays, lock all windows and doors, turn off any space heaters, and make sure to set your All-Guard alarm system before you leave.  Even if you leave the house for just 15 minutes.

Make your home look occupied while you’re away; the LYNX Touch L5100 allows you to easily control your indoor and outdoor lighting from your smart phone or your tablet. You can control the lighting in real-time or schedule the lights to turn on and off at different times. Also, ask a friend or a neighbor to remove any newspapers and flyers from your driveway, front yard, and front porch while you’re away.

The best gift you can give is the gift of security. For every referral you give that turns into a sale All-Guard will reward you with three (3) months FREE monitoring (up to $35.00 per month). Click here for more details. Link:

Best wishes for a safe, happy, and peaceful holiday season from your trusted alarm company.
