Do your small children know how to call 911 in case of an emergency?  Do you have a Home Security Plan that lays out protection for your home and what family members should do in case of a major emergency - like a home invasion robbery? If not, it’s a good idea to set one up especially if you have small children.

When parents educate their children - even at a young age - they will know what to do and many times can respond proactively in ways that may save lives.  Watch this video and read the story of a 7-year old boy’s heroic actions that did just that.

A terrified 7-year-old boy begged emergency dispatchers to send police to his Southern California home where three armed robbers threatened his parents, according to a recording of the call released Tuesday.

The three men remain at large. g 7-year old who was smart enough to hide from the home intruders and call 911 when his home became the target of a violent home invasion robbery crime.

Gunmen broke into the boy’s home Tuesday morning and announced that they would take whatever they wanted, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Steve Kenny said.

The boy and his 6-year-old sister hid unnoticed in the locked bathroom while the suspects threatened his mother and father at gunpoint.

“There’s some guy who’s going to kill my mom and dad,” he said breathlessly. “Bring cops. A lot of them! … And soldiers, too.”

The suspects eventually broke into the bathroom and someone screamed. The 911 operator sounded shaken as she explained what happened to her colleagues.

Kenny said the suspects grabbed the boy and asked who he called. He responded, “911.” The gunmen fled without taking anything or injuring the family.

“If not for the brave and educated actions of the 7-year-old boy, this might have ended tragically,” said sheriff’s Capt. Pat Maxwell.

This type of crime is happening more and more all across our country.  Have a plan of action and educate family members so they know what to do in case you experience a home invasion crime like this.

My recommendation is to build a solid level of security protection around your home.  That means installing a home security system, solid deadbolt locks, and an early alert warning system - and that’s just for starters!!!

Become more proactive and protect your home and family today!
