I just received this in an email fom my mom, and it truly is fabulous advice.I thought I would share this with all.
Put your car keys beside your bed at night. If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just 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. This
tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this:
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 fob 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 or rapist won't stick around and
after a few seconds all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won't want that. And
remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there. This is something that should really be
shared with everyone .Maybe it could save a life or a sexual abuse crime from happening.
Would also be useful for any emergency, such as a heart attack, where you can't reach a phone.
