Insurance Insights: In the Event of a Break-In
According to data from the most recent year for which numbers are available, there were in excess of 2 million American households burglarized in 2004, which translates to tens of thousands per day. Prevention, of course, including secure locks for windows and doors, adequate lighting, and alarm systems, form the first line of defense against such intrusions. Additionally, homeowners should take a complete inventory of everything they own in order to get the most out of their homeowners policies. Write down the model and serial numbers of electronic equipment, appliances, and other big-ticket items. Store the list on file on a computer, as well as on paper kept in a safety deposit box. Take a video inventory, if possible.
