Safe rooms are one home defense measure you would rather have and not need than need and not have.
We’ve all had that similar feeling – you’re at home alone, late at night, and you begin to hear strange sounds. Instantly, your eyes widen and your muscles tense as you feverishly try to explain to yourself that all that stomping and banging is just the wind. Paranoia takes over and you panic, fearing that at any moment a stranger could burst through your door with cruel intentions.
What do you do next?
Dealing with a home invasion or any other type of criminal activity can be a harrowing and life-changing experience. People don’t fear for their lives and safety on an everyday basis – being confronted with such violence and uncertainty can be overwhelming and incredibly damaging.
Nobody thinks that their home will be broken into. However, according to the United States Department of Justice, an average of nearly 4 million homes were broken into each year from 2003 to 2007, and residents personally knew the suspect in about 65% of all home invasions. A robbery or breaking and entering can quickly turn violent as well; simple assault is the most common to occur when violence breaks out, while robbery and rape were possible but significantly less likely. Criminals aren’t always expecting someone to be home – a situation can escalate very quickly when a burglar is confronted. While they may try and flee, they could also take action to harm you and your family before trying to make off with all of your property.
