Below is a list of simple, yet important steps that business owners can follow to protect their premises.

  1. Tightly secure all doors and windows.
  2. Review the exterior of your business at night to ensure that all exterior lighting is adequate and functioning.
  3. Remove all product displays from exterior facing windows.
  4. Ensure that your security system is working properly, and that Damar Security Systems has current and up to date contact information.
