What to take to bed with you (not a joke)

Put your car keys beside your bed at night.

Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents, your Dr's
office, the check-out girl at the market, everyone you run across. Put your
car keys beside your bed at night.

If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your
house, just press the panic button for your car.The alarm will be set off,
and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car
battery dies.

This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Next time you come home
for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this: It's a
security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no
installation. Test it. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house
and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it
with the button on the key fob chain. It works if you park in your driveway
or garage.

If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your house,
odds are the burglar/rapist won't stick around. After a few seconds, all the
neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure
enough the criminal won't want that. And remember to carry your keys while
walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there.
This is something that should really be shared with everyone. Maybe it could
save a life or a sexual abuse crime.

P.S. I am sending this to everyone I know because I think it is fantastic.
Would also be useful for any emergency, such as a heart attack, where you
can't reach a phone. My Mom has suggested to my Dad that he carry his car
keys with him in case he falls outside and she doesn't hear him. He can
activate the car alarm and then she'll know there's a problem.

Please pass this on.

Don't have no panic button on my key fob nor an alarm on truck. I just leave keys in it so I never forget where they are :)

A .45 works pretty well too. :)
