ATM Emergency

How to Foil a Thief at an ATM

I just learned about this and want to share it with my followers. Were you aware that there is a way to stop from being robbed at

an ATM machine?  I didn’t until just now.  If a thief tries to get you to get money from an ATM machine,  just don’t argue or try to fight him–just do as he says with one exception— Punch in your number but do it in reverse.  If your pin is 5678 then punch in

8765.    Your cash will come out but it will be stuck in the machine and you won’t be able to retrieve it. And the machine will secretly notify the police that there is a hold up in process at that location. All ATM machines are equipped with this feature.  This is good to know and I hope that none of us will ever have to use this device. Stay safe!

Emergency Preparedness for Seniors

September 12th, 2013

Family Emergency Preparedness

Emergency Preparedness is for everyone.  Each member of the family has special needs: adults, seniors, children babies and pets. Don’t wait until a disaster is on the way before getting ready.  Think about all the different kinds of disasters that can happen in your area. There are many and may occur tomorrow. Don’t be caught unprepared.  Being ready to face the aftermath of a disaster can mean saving your life and the life of your loved ones.   Watch the following FEMA video “Disaster Planning for Seniors and the Elderly.

Many types of emergencies can happen at any time such as natural disasters: hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, wildfires, tornadoes and these can occur often in various parts of the country.  Sadly we also have to be prepared for man made disasters such as terrorist attacks. Remember 9/11!  Don’t let the month of September go by without getting emergency kits for home, office, school and vehicles. You will never know where you will be when you need emergency supplies. Federal and local government are offering many activities for educating the population about preparing for emergencies. FEMA offers “An In-Dept Guide to Citizen Preparedness“. Read it. Download and print it .  An Interactive Course is also provided. Take advantage of all these fine materials.  They are there solely for your safety and your family’s safety.
