Crime Prevention Advice for Farms and Other Rural Properties

Farmhouses and other rural properties are the same as any other home and need the same security measures in place.

However, because of the remote location, additional security measures may be beneficial.

🚜Keep the boundaries of your land and property well - maintained and secure

🚜Fit strong locks to sheds, garages and outbuildings

🚜Install a visible burglar alarm and CCTV cameras to watch over the most vulnerable areas of the property

🚜Keep a record of all valuable items

Hot Weather Advice

For many, the recent hot weather is something that is welcomed and enjoyed. Whilst everybody is at risk from health consequences of heat, there are some factors that make some people more vulnerable during a heatwave. Please check in on people who may not be coping so well with the heat.

If you're outside enjoying the warm weather, or remaining indoors in the heat, please remember to:

💦 Stay hydrated

🌒 Move into the shade whilst outdoors, or a cooler part of your home

💨 Open windows - natural ventilation can keep your home cool without increasing the spread of infection

🔌 Turn off lights and electrical equipment that is not in use
