It’s after hours and you have armed your alarm for the evening. Later you receive a system notification from your burglar alarm company, how would you respond?
Would you brush it off as a false alarm? Or neglect to check on the business? If so, you’ll want to change your response due to the recent rash of power-cutting burglaries. Here are six tips Jewelers Mutual suggests to make sure your store remains secure in the wake of these attacks.
