How to Protect The Most Vulnerable Family Members!

protect vulnerable family members

Families Come In All Shapes and Sizes!

Some families are units consistent with 1 or 2 people.

Other families have a larger unit to include several children.

Again other families have multiple generations living together to make up a family unit.

Whatever your family looks like, we are sure of two things

You

  • love them
  • want to protect them

We are here to offer some insights and help!

Protect Vulnerable Family Members First!

Below find some of the most vulnerable family members as well as ways you can protect them and keep them safe.

Protect the Elderly in your Home!

An elderly person living in your home, or living alone, often spends time home alone.

In case of emergency, we recommend a wearable personal safety button, also called a panic button.

Grandma needs a panic button

 

School Children Coming Home After School to an Empty House

Is there ever a ‘right time’ to leave your child home alone?

How do you know your child is ready to come home after school to an empty house?

We hear and know your concerns.

New Baby? You Need a New Emergency Plan!

Anytime you have a new addition to the family, your family emergency plan should change!

You also need to update your home, to keep your new baby safe from harm as s/he grows and starts being mobile!

Family Security Doesn’t Have To Cost an Arm and a Leg!

Every family should have the peace of mind that comes with having a security system!

We at Strand Security work with families to find a solution that works and one they can afford.

Doesn’t everyone deserve security and safety?

Secure Your Doors as Babies Become Mobile!

As babies grow from infants to roaming toddlers, your families’ needs may change to include locks and alerts on doors, windows and pools!

Installing a home camera system is another great way to keep ‘an eye’ on roaming toddlers!

Got a New Teenaged Driver? Safety First!

Teenagers enjoy the new freedom they get once they have a driver’s license. With that freedom comes new danger and dangerous situations. Keep your teenagers safe from harm. Here are some tips.

Track Your Teenager on the Road for Safety

Did you know we can help you track your new teenager driver (or your elderly relative if need be!)? How about that peace of mind when they are out and about.

While protecting your teenager is great, you are also tracking that expensive car of yours, of course!

Teenagers Don’t Want to Talk To You!

How then, will you know they are doing their homework, chores or if they arrived home safely?

A system like Honeywell Lynx would let you know exactly that!
Security cameras and the system can send you updates in realtime as to their whereabouts and on-going activities in your home! No need to ask them what they are doing; you can just check the cameras!

Last But Not Least, Protect Your Pets!

While pets can help deter break-ins and chase off would-be-burglars, they are still vulnerable.

If no one is home and fire were to break out, these family members need rescuing too!

Side note: How fun is it, to see what your dog is up to while you are at work? Lots of fun! 😉

5 Fall Home Security Tips for Homeowners

fall security tips for homeowners

Fall Is Here!

If you live in South Carolina in the Myrtle Beach area, it doesn’t FEEL like fall, but when you check the calendar, it tells us it is Fall indeed!

As I write this it’s 90F and sunny, hot and humid.

No jackets or long sleeves for us, but more of what we’ve been wearing since March; shorts and t-shirts!

Whether you love it or hate it, there will be an end to this summer weather and October is a great month to get your home ready for winter.

Get Ready For Cooler Temperatures!

As we get ready for cooler temperatures, homeowners should consider a few chores to get their home ready for winter.

Preparing a home for cooler weather in Fall and warmer weather in Spring is smart.

Putting off these types of chores might result in minor emergencies with regards to equipment, heating and cooling systems as well as security.

Here are 5 Fall Home Security Tips

Homeowners, get your list ready!

1) Get Your Chimney Inspected and Swept

If you have a working fireplace in your home, you should get your chimney swept every year.

A build-up of soot can cause fires.

From an earlier article we published we learn that

The byproduct of enjoying a crackling flame is creosote buildup (the major cause of chimney fires) and soot, which can restrict air flow and damage the fireplace chimney. Even a gas fireplace chimney can become blocked by a bird’s nest or other debris. Prevent problems with an annual chimney inspection.

Today is as good as any day to make that appointment!

2) Make an Appointment to Have Your HVAC serviced

At some point in the next few months, you will be turning the switch on your HVAC system from ‘cooling’ to ‘heating’.

Is your system prepared?

Get an inspection and service scheduled today. Fall is a great time to get everything working right so on that first day you turn on the heat, you do not have to call and get an emergency visit from your HVAC provider.

Maintenance and periodic testing prevent emergency calls, on any system, including your home security system!

3) Lock Your Windows

If your home has screens for summer and storm windows for winter, you’ll be changing those out this season.

When you do, do NOT forget to lock your windows back up.

Unlocked windows are a way many burglars gain access to homes!

When asked this is what convinced felons had to say:

How did you typically break into a home or apartment?

Most inmates broke in through an unlocked door or window.

Whenever you or a service provider work on your windows, always double-check that your windows have been re-locked once the task is done.

4) Add Outdoor Lighting as Days Get Shorter

Fall is when we experience the end of daylight saving time. In 2019, that day is Sunday, November 3.

When Daylight Saving Time ends, our evenings immediately become a lot darker, a lot longer!

Fall is, therefore, a great time to review your outdoor lighting.

  • Do you have lights on sensors and/or timers?
  • How well-lit, is your outdoor space; would a burglar want to approach your home, or would they rather skip by because of the visibility?

If it’s dark around your home, add lights on timers and/or sensors.

5) Remove Yard Debris Frequently

Nothing says ‘I am not home a lot’ and ‘Come on in’ as leaving your front and backyards full of debris.

That includes

  • leaves
  • twigs/dead branches
  • toys
  • tools
  • unused equipment
  • broken furniture

and more!

A well-groomed yard conveys the message that a caring homeowner lives in the house! More often than not, that’s the house a burglar will skip!

Caring homeowners often have security systems and cameras installed, and those are the last thing a burglar wants to see!

Additional Fall Home Security Tips

In a previous article, we touched on several other tips for the homeowner.

Check them out here.

Go out and spend some time outdoors.

Enjoy the season and use caution around your home!

Clean up, test and maintain the systems that will keep you safe when an emergency arises.

Happy Fall Y’all!

How To Protect Your Business and Employees from Harm

protect business and employees

Are You a Small Business Owner with Employees?

If you are a small business owner on the Grand Strand, in either Horry County or Georgetown County and you have employees, you know how hard it is to keep good workers around.

The Myrtle Beach area is a fairly transient area. While we have 1400+ new residents moving to the area each month, many don’t plan very well for their move to the Grand Strand. Crime is on the rise in certain areas, and robberies happen.

As a small business owner, you manage your business and you manage your employees. That’s a lot of management and responsibility.

Your main job is to keep your customers happy and your employees safe from harm!

That is where we at Strand Security come in.

While we can’t really create happy customers for your business, we can help protect your business and your employees!

How To Protect a Business and Employees From Harm to the Best of Your Ability

Knowledge is power. We know you know it.

How are you putting this into practice?

Are you educating your staff on safety procedures, first aid, fire safety and more?

Or are you doing only what is required by law?

Happy employees create happy customers. Simple as that!

Let us help you create a safe and secure environment for your employees in order for them to serve your customers with a smile on their face!

Here are 7 Ways to Protect Your Business and Employees from Harm

While this is not a complete list, this is a great place to start!

1) Mandatory Safety Training

Put each new employee through safety training.
That training would include

2) Safety Rules and Regulation Signage

Once each employee has gone through safety training classes/workshops, keep this information fresh in the minds of all who’ve attended by installing safety rules and regulation signage and reminders in your place of business.

3) Update Safety Procedures Quarterly

Bring in an expert at least once per year, but preferably quarterly to update safety procedures.

A 30-minute reminder about rules and regulations goes a long way to keeping everyone safe at work! An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

4) Hire Security and Safety Officers

This suggestion is good for certain industries and businesses; not everyone needs a security or safety officer on staff! However, in certain places and certain situations, this suggestion warrants a second look!

5) Install a Monitored Security System

If keeping your employees safe is your # 1 concern in your business, give them and yourself peace of mind and have a professional security company equip your place of business with a monitored security system!

6) Install Security Cameras

In addition to a monitored system, adding security cameras is an even better way to keep your employees out of harm’s way.

7) Install Panic Buttons

Last but not least, a panic button will be one of the best investments your small business can make to ensure the safety of your employees, and yourself at all times. Industries that should consider panic button include, but are not limited to

  • gas stations
  • hotels
  • retail stores
  • jewelry stores
  • liquor stores
  • restaurants
  • banks
  • pawn shops
  • and many others!

Additional Safety Training To Offer

While the following training suggestions aren’t required for most small businesses, we suggest you as the owner provide additional opportunities for your employees to learn these next skills.

3 Ways To Protect Your Business Property From a Hurricane

protect business during hurricane

Hurricane Preparations Start Now!

If you live in the southeast, you should have a hurricane emergency plan.

Hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30 every year and while most hurricanes are active in September and October, a hurricane could develop in the other months.

Hurricane prep for your family, home and business should start now, while the skies are blue and the sun is shining and most people are enjoying the beach.

Doesn’t matter whether you read this in June, July or August – Hurricane prep should be done weeks if not months before a named storm heads your way!

Protecting Your Business Property During a Hurricane

Besides your home and family, your business property will also need looking after during a hurricane.

What steps can you take today, to make that happen and how can you best protect your business property when a hurricane comes to the Grand Strand, or to the place where you reside?

Let’s look at 3 ways you can make an impact today, that will help you secure your business property later!

1) Create a Hurricane Prep Plan For Your Business

Much like a family emergency plan, and a hurricane preparation plan for your family, your business needs one as well.

This written plan should layout how to prepare your building for a hurricane, different scenarios depending on the severity and strength of the hurricane, who will be in charge when the hurricane hits, whom to contact after a hurricane (electric company, water company, contractor, insurance agent), your insurance paperwork and suppliers information and other important details you will need, to keep your business afloat in times of inclement weather.

  • Lists are your friend when things get hectic.
  • Lists will help you stay focused in a time of chaos.
  • Lists can keep you on track to complete all tasks.

You see, panic sets in once the local news stations merely hint at a possible storm, and supplies will be gone before you know it.

As business owners who’ve lived on the Grand Strand nearly 10 years, we’ve seen a few storms head our way and we’ve seen business owners (as well as local residents) be ill-prepared.

Don’t get caught without a plan!

2) Set Up Remote Monitoring For Your Business Property

How scary will it be if you have to evacuate and leave everything you know and love behind?

Super scary! We know first-hand.

However, there are ways you can still keep an eye on your home and business property in case of a storm when you need to hunker down or evacuate; remote monitoring!

We offer this service to monitor your business year-round to

now add

  • monitor during a hurricane

as another reason to get a remote monitoring system installed at your business property!

With this system in place, you can watch in real-time what is happening.

This monitoring becomes vital after a hurricane has come and gone as flooding and looting are two concerns that pop up afterward!

2019 hurricane guide for South Carolina

3) Order Hurricane Supplies Now

Last but not least, do the following as soon as you can, before any storm hits the Atlantic waters and stirs up the Grand Strand!

  • hire a contractor or handyman to cut boards for your business property windows
  • buy a generator
  • test your current alarm system
  • purchase extra batteries from your security company
  • get your hands on sandbags (Amazon is great for that!)

We’ve been through several hurricanes since moving to the Grand Strand area from Maryland and each one is as unpredictable as the next.

It’s not just the wind and rain you have to account for, but also flooding afterward!

What To Do First When a Hurricane Is Headed Your Way

When A Hurricane Is Headed for the Grand Strand

If a hurricane might be on its way to the Grand Strand and Myrtle Beach area, you’ll be monitoring the weather closely. Local news stations will have the latest updates and will be predicting the path of the hurricane, with limited success, of course.

Those who’ve lived here for years know that nothing is set in stone and that hurricanes can and do often change direction.

Usually, you have about a week before a hurricane has made its way to you from the time of the first warning. 

So what is the first thing you need to do when a hurricane is headed your way?

Keep reading and we’ll tell you!

hurricane is coming to the Grand Strand how to prepare

Activate Your Family Emergency and Hurricane Plan

You read that right.

If a hurricane is headed your way, the first thing to do it to activate your emergency and hurricane plan.

What do these look like?

They are written plans which detail many steps to take to get your family to safety and include things like

  • evacuation destination
  • what to bring in case of an evacuation
  • important paperwork you’ll need
  • where or how to transport your pet
  • how to get your house ready for a hurricane
  • how to get your business ready for a hurricane

and much more.

The important part of these plans is that you’ve done your homework BEFORE the threat of a hurricane reaches your area because if you don’t have a plan, and that happens, all bets are off to get supplies.

There will be an instantaneous shortage of sandbags, generators and hotel rooms, just a few things that are essential to having a safe and affordable hurricane plan.

Hurricane Supply Tip

Just a friendly tip; amazon sells sandbags and other hurricane supplies, so may we suggest you order items now, right now, and tuck those away for later?

Things to buy now, and tuck away in your hurricane supply kit include

  • sandbags
  • cleaning supplies
  • toilet paper
  • paper towels
  • garbage bags
  • water (1 gallon per person per day)
  • mop and bucket
  • hurricane candles and flashlights
  • power banks
  • extra bag of pet food
  • extra propane tank for your outdoor grill
  • first-aid kit
  • generator

Every local outlet will be scrambling to have as many of these supplies on hand as possible, but each time a hurricane heads this way we hear of people missing out on sandbags and other items on this list as the supply lines dry up quickly.

Amazon and online purchasing should be done before the threat of a hurricane because supply lines will close for everyone.

Order now, don’t delay.

The Big One Is Coming, Now Prepare For That Hurricane Hit

If after a few days the weather pattern holds steady and it does look like a hurricane will make landfall or impact on the Grand Strand, or the area where you live, you will need to do many more things to get ready.

As a homeowner vs renter, you are the sole person in charge of your property. You will either need to hire someone to board up your house, or you will need to do it yourself. If you’d made a hurricane and family emergency plan, you will be all set and have these boards cut to size in your garage or storage shed waiting for you to board up your home.

If you failed to plan for this possibility, you will be hard-pressed to find boards at any home improvement store!

Don’t Be Scared, be Prepared!

The Grand Strand is growing!  Over 1400 people are moving to our area every single month. Many are arriving here form places that don’t ever see hurricanes so there are a lot of people who do not know how to prepare.

We’ve created the 2019 South Carolina Hurricane Guide for Homeowners.

2019 hurricane guide for South Carolina

Please read, download and share! Tag a friend and prepare, just in case. It’s heartbreaking to see people panicked, afraid and just unprepared to either hunker down or evacuate without a plan and supplies. Being ill-prepared could cost them their lives.

Your safety is our business.

How To Prepare Your Business For the Next Hurricane

 prepare business for hurricane

Grand Strand Businesses and Hurricanes

If you own a home on the Grand Strand, you need our 2019 Hurricane Guide stat, to be ready when the next hurricane hits.

If you own a business on the Grand Strand, you will need that same Hurricane Guide and then some.

As a business owners you are not only responsible for your own family and home, but for the safety of your employees, as well as your commerical property.

Hurricane prep becomes of the utmost importance when you have more than a home and family to take care of.

In this article, we will point you to some important resources to have handy for when the next storm heads toward South Carolina, Myrtle Beach, and the Grand Strand.

Hurricane Preparedness for Business Owners

All of the guidelines and preparations you make to get your home ready for a possible hit during hurricane season apply to your business.

All the info you need to get started TODAY is right here!

2019 hurricane guide for South Carolina

There is ONE big difference, however, and that is how you deal with and support employees before, during and after a hurricane.

Let’s discuss two scenarios next!

When Your Business Should Stay Open if a Hurricane Approaches

If your business is crucial to the well-being of first-responders and those not evacuating, you might consider keeping your business open as long as possible as the hurricane approaches.

Examples include

  • hardware stores
  • grocery stores
  • auto part stores
  • (some) restaurants
  • health clinics
  • pharmacies
  • security companies

and more.

It might be good to keep only a ‘skeleton crew of employees’ and send off those who want or need to leave to care of young children or elderly parents to do so or evacuate.

When Your Business Should Close if a Hurricane Approaches

If you, however, are a business that provides services or goods not crucial in supporting those who will work during a hurricane like that list we mentioned above, consider closing early to send your employees home so they can prepare their home to keep their family safe!

Businesses who sell non-essential* items or provide non-essential* services like

  • law offices
  • accounting offices
  • retail stores (clothing, shoes)
  • amusement parks
  • museums
  • universities

*for hurricanes

might want to consider closing early.

Roads will get clogged up as people try to evacuate and the sooner people can leave, the better.

When in doubt whether you need to close your business or not (if you are new to the business for example) look at similar businesses in other locations (for us that would be Florida).

A proven track record for staying open or closing early will give you the data you need to make this decision.

When in doubt, err on the safe side and close up shop, or open up for limited hours as the hurricane approaches.

Hurricane Recovery Info for Business Owners on the Grand Strand

In the aftermath of Hurricane Florence in 2018, Grand Strand Businesses stepped up big time. Their involvement with Hurricane recovery, rebuilding and outreach did not go unnoticed.

There are many ways businesses can help in the aftermath of a hurricane.

That includes

  • donating goods or services directly to hurricane victims
  • helping to raise funds for hurricane victims
  • offering dry storage space to charities to store supplies
  • being present with man-power to help clean up damaged and flooded homes
  • arranging food delivery to utility, FEMA and other workers from out of state who are helping

No matter what you do, every little bit counts and does get noticed.

Do good!

How to Know When Your Child is Safe Home Alone After School

home alone after school

At What Age Can A Child Be Left Home Alone After School?

South Carolina schools in both Hory County and Georgetown County will be back in session in LESS THEN ONE MONTH and if you are a parent of school-aged children, pre-teens or teenagers after-school care solutions is what’s on your mind right now, are we right?

If you’ve researched after school programs, babysitters and clubs, you know that choices are limited and enrollment is expensive.

You might be ready to try the ‘free’ route aka allow your child to be home alone after school! 

The question ‘At what age can a child be left home alone after school’ is one we hear quite frequently. As parents ourselves, we’ve had that same question years ago!

There is a two-part answer to this question.

  1. The LEGAL AGE a child can be left home alone after school in South Carolina is non-specific (there is no law regarding the age at which children can be left alone), however, the state has issued a non-legal guideline recommending that children younger than 8 never be left alone.
  2. The age you might want to leave your child home alone after school differs from child-to-child!

What does this mean?

It’s up to you as a parent; use your common sense and available resources!

Does Your Child Ask To be Left Home Alone After School?

In a previous article, we gave some advice on how to find out if your child is ready to be left home alone.

That included looking at the following criteria

  • state laws
  • maturity
  • safety standards

One way to measure maturity is that they either bring it up themselves or that they are excited about the opportunity.

via GIPHY

How To Prepare A Child To Be Home Alone After School

Preparation is key for a child to be ready to be home alone after school.

Rules are important!

From that previously mentioned article, we learn to

  • Schedule set times for parental contact during the time spent home alone.
  • Discuss telephone ettiquette and what information is ok to share and not share.
  • Establish a code word in case there is a need to communicate with the child through a third party.
  • Discuss before hand who should be allowed in the house, and who should not be.
  • Make a list of rules. Is it ok to play with neighborhood kids or play outside? Which activities are not allowed?
  • Again, a prepared person (including a child) is someone with confidence!

Safety Rules For Kids Staying Home Alone After School

These rules are rules kids should know regardless of being home alone, or with a parent!

  • Rehearse possible situations the child might face. Rehearse what to do in case of a fire, power outage, tornado, security alarm set off.
  • Rehearse what to do if a stranger knocks on the door.
  • For an extra safety measure, install a security system. This will allow you to be notified when your child has arrived home from school and also allows you to check on them from time to time.

Kids are rehearsing for emergencies at school; why not rehearse them at home once per month as well?

How To Keep an Eye on Your Child Who Is Home Alone After School

For those among you who are excited at the prospect of being able to allow your child the freedom of being home alone after school, but are still worried, we have several options for you; all of those will ease your mind!

What is the Best Home Audio System Available?

home audio system myrtle beachGrand Strand New Construction or Buying A Home?

The Grand Strand area is seeing a huge influx of new residents.

People are drawn to South Carolina for many reasons, mostly economic reasons.

Taxes are fairly low, the cost of living is lower than in most states and the weather is great. Except for the occasional hurricane, of course!

Are you are looking to move to the Grand Strand, or have you recently relocated to the Myrtle Beach area and need to improve your home?

Did you purchase a newly constructed home, or are you in the market to buy an existing home?

Are You In The Market For A Home Audio System?

Most women buy a home based on the features of the kitchen, bathroom, as well as the location of the home.

Men buy a home based on the opinion of their spouse. ?

A few things men do love and look at in a new purchase is a home audio system, a man cave, and home theatre options!

Who wouldn’t want to watch all the games on a big screen with surround sound?

What Do You Need Your Home Audio System To Do?

Ask and answer the following questions:

  • Do you want complete control with one remote?
  • Do you need sound in all rooms?
  • Do you want to have surround-sound?
  • How about outdoor speakers?
  • Who will use the home audio system the most?
  • Do you own equipment that can be used?
  • Are you loyal to certain brands?

Once you have answered these questions, it’s time to move to the next part.

Where Do You Want Your Audio To Stream?

Wiring the whole house for a home audio system is a large job, made much easier if it’s new construction!

If you want outdoor speakers for your home audio system, you will need to make sure that the brands you pick have speakers and systems that accommodate your outdoor space. Rest assured, most do.

The biggest question is next:

Will You Install Your Home Audio System Yourself?

We understand wanting to save a bit of money.

However, installing a home audio system without the proper knowledge and understanding of how this works can lead to … home disasters.

We recommend you only attempt a DIY installation if you are a seasoned handyman or installation pro.

Who Do Your Trust on The Grand Strand to Install Your Audio System?

Only one name should come to mind when you need a home audio system installation!

Chuck!

If you’ve ever met Chuck Bryant of Strand Security you know he’s got the skills and know-how to install your home audio system – and any other (security) system – in your home!
