Warmer weather means more open windows and doors

As the warmer weather arrives, the FPD would like to remind all residents to make sure they are not leaving their homes vulnerable to theft and burglary. A ground floor window left open or unlocked to keep the house cool, although convenient, is a perfect way for a potential burglar to get in the house. With it remaining lighter out later in the evening, many people accidentally leave the garage door open during the night, possibly due to forgetting to close it on their way in or out of the house.  Double check all doors, screens, and windows before leaving the house or going to bed for the night.
