An alarm system most of us have overlooked....be sure to give it a quick look!

This was part of an e-mail I received and I thought it should definitely be shared.......
I know I never thought of it....I just "copied and pasted" it as it is in the letter....

Put your car keys beside your bed at night.

Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents, your
Dr.'s office, the check-out girl at the market, everyone you run across.

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 into your house,
odds are the burglar/rapist won't stick around. 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.

P.S.
I am sending this to everyone I know because I think it is fantastic.
Would also be useful for any emergency, such as a heart attack, where
you can't reach a phone.
My Mom has suggested to my Dad that he carry his car keys with him in
case he falls outside and she doesn't hear him.
He can activate the car alarm and then she'll know there's a problem.

The key to my home defense rifle is on my key chain. I've slept with my key chain next to me for years, never thought about that though.

Good call.
