Protect America Releases “Countdown to Summer Vacation” Safety Guide


Company aims to prepare homeowners for home safety while away on vacation.

Austin, Texas – May 19, 2016 – Protect America, Inc., home security and automation provider, has released its “Countdown to Summer Vacation” guide – a home security checklist for vacationers.

According to the American Automobile Association, more than 38 million Americans are projected to travel this Memorial Day weekend. Protect America’s goal is to help homeowners develop best practices in combating burglary during vacation season.

Among the company’s recommendations are to keep a vehicle in one’s driveway when away for long periods of time. This gives the illusion that the home is occupied. The company even suggests asking a neighbor to park their car in the driveway periodically.

Other suggested tips include contacting one’s bank and home security company before traveling, holding mail deliveries and carefully limiting social media sharing while away.

“We’re confident this guide will truly help travelers.” said Protect America CEO Scott Fleming. “Knowing one has taken the proper precautions can only enhance the vacation experience.”

The guide also includes a downloadable checklist for vacationers preparing for a trip.
