If you are planning a vacation that will leave your home unoccupied, make sure to follow some safe guards that will protect against loss or damage while you are away: Be sure that small appliances (irons, coffee pots) are turned off and even unplugged to prevent fire or smoke damage. To discourage vandalism and burglaries while you are away, make sure to halt newspaper and mail delivery, set lights on timers and mow your grass on the day you le ave. Make sure a trusted neighbor or relative has a key to the home to check in on the house.  This same person should have a phone number to reach you and the phone number of your insurance agent in case a claim should occur while you are away.
