Here's a safety tip that is making the email rounds. I thought it would be helpful to know this when camping.

This is a really clever idea.

Next time you come home for the night and you go to put your car keys away, think of this:

It's a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Start keeping your car keys next to your bed on the night stand when you go to bed at night.

If you think someone is trying to get into your house, or if you hear a noise outside your house, just press the panic alarm on your car key chain. 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 or rapist won't stick around after a few seconds all th e neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won't want that.

Try yours to make sure it works before you rely on it. Just know that you must press the alarm button again to turn it off.

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.

Pass it on.

Ingenious. Till now, I've never used the panic alarm on purpose, only by accident.

All my neighbors would do is complain the alarm went off, without looking to see if anything wrong was actually happening.

Until Yesterday, I have never owned a car with a remote thingy on the key.

Well, don't lose it! [b]The replacements are expensive!
