Going on Vacation? Below are some ideas and reference tools to consider.

  • Stop your mail and package deliveries.

  • Inform a trustworthy and reliable neighbor

  • Install a Ring or Nest Doorbell or some other surveillance camera

  • Have someone visit or stay at your home to ensure no water pipes burst or leak, or any other disaster strikes while you are gone.

  • Prepare a Medical release

If you are going to be leaving the immediate area and lucky enough to have parents, in-laws, or friends house sitting or babysitting in your absence, its best to be prepared by leaving a useful list of city numbers, preferred contractors who may already know your home, friends or neighbors names and contact numbers in the event they may be needed to assist in an emergency.

More important items to consider are where GFI breaker resets are located, emergency panels, water disconnects, alarm codes, and of course not essential but how to use the remotes. It is also important to have local schools' numbers and teacher names, homework, sleep schedules or dietary concerns, any medications, and primary doctors' contacts that are easily available.

Another essential item not to forget is a signed authorization for medical treatment in your absence. Although these items may be on your mind already, they important not to forget.

Being prepared has its advantages, see other helpful resources and lists at
