tornado and emergency locksmith solutions

Imagine you are at home, watching your favorite program on TV, reading a book or enjoying the company of your family and suddenly you hear the tornado siren: a twister is fast on it's way to your city. If you hear the siren early enough, you can think about how to secure your property before evacuation. But in most cases, the weather is so unpredictable that there is no time for fore-thought.

What will happen to your home and valuables in that situation? It may sound terrible when you first stop to think about it, but it's tragic when you come home and find your house still standing, but all your precious belongings missing. There is something very simple you can do, but it requires planning ahead: There are security systems that can be installed in your house or office that can make your life a whole lot easier in case of emergency. With such systems in place, you can control all your locks with one click of a button on your way out the door. You can even activate the alarm with the use of remote control or through your smartphone if you are already out the door and far away. If you are one of the millions of people who are living in a high tornado risk area, don’t wait until it’s too late. Secure your house from thieves who will for sure take advantage of the situation, wait for you to leave the house and break into in order to steal your property.

Robbery during the cataclysm

Make security part of your tornado emergency plan

Thieves have realized that homes of people who are moving out because of the tornado or any other cataclysm, hiding in shelters or going to the family in other states, are perfect targets as they are left alone and nobody is watching them in the chaos. This can be a warning of the fact that even in a dangerous situation, we have to take care of our property and not hope that there will be no one who will want to take advantage of our tragedy. It is sad and inappropriate but, unfortunately, true.

We have information that because of tornados the crime rates are increasing. What’s interesting, burglars are not waiting for houses in the tornado area but for places where people have to move from their homes for a longer time.

In a situation of danger, you need something that will protect your house from being robbed if you accidentally leave the door unlocked. When you hear the sirens warning people, you have around 13 minutes before the tornado hits. It means there is no time to do much, you have to be ready and prepared. You should check earlier where is the closest shelter where you can hide and how to get there in the fastest possible way. When you are in a hurry, you don’t think about some important stuff, however, you should remember to check if your house and all your property are safe, as well as if the security system works.

In that case, very helpful are emergency locksmith services which will provide you with everything you need.

Dave is great! He was punctual and professional. And after installing the new locks on all of our doors, he cleaned up after himself! The same cannot be said for the last service I hired… would definitely recommend and use again!

We live not too far from Chicago and I spend about a hour and a half to get to my office. Mornings are always in a hurry for me and a broken door would be the worst I could expect. However, this was exactly what happened. I had no time to lose and so I called 247 Ontime Locksmiths. The expert guy from Locksmiths could fix the problem and I could go to work.
