Safety in the Community
Brea is one of the safest cities in California. Police, fire, and ambulance services are always adequately supplied.
And Brea has a low crime rate. Part of the reason for that is the great community spirit. People live here a long time. They’re friendly and get to know their neighbors. They notice when they come and go, and if they see something unusual they report it. Everybody watches out for everyone else.
If you’re thinking about safety, starting a neighborhood watch is a great way to get to know your neighbors.
Safety in the Home
it’s a proven fact that nicer neighborhoods have less crime, because most criminal acts are crimes of opportunity. Brea is a city of very nice neighborhoods so we have very little crime.
However, there are some guidelines to follow when it comes to ensuring you and your family’s safety in your home. The most obvious is to lock your front door at all times, whether you are inside, out in the yard, or away from the house.
If unexpected visitors arrive it’s better to look them over before opening the door, perhaps with a peep hole. And make sure you know who they are before letting them in.
The easiest way to deter crime is by using proper lighting. Think of adding lights to any dark entrances around your home or use a motion sensing light to help keep the outside of your home as well-lit as possible. Also, make sure to leave some lights on when you go out to give the illusion that someone is home.
Home safety is not just about crime. It’s also about keeping your home clean and in order. Keep flammable fluids in proper containers and stored away. Keep dangerous tools and cleaning fluids out of reach of children.
Finally, make sure to identify trouble spots and entry points in your home and take care of them now. A little preparation in advance can ensure major problems never happen.
These are just a few of the many ways that you can keep your home and your family safe. It is always a good idea to talk to the local police and ask them for any other tips or advice when it comes to ensuring the safety of your home.
Although all the homes for sale in Brea are in friendly, safe neighborhoods that enjoy a low crime rate, always remember that a safe and secure home begins with you.
