Super Bowl Preparations Begin!

The Meadowlands in New Jersey, home of the Giants and the Jets, was the site of Disney On Ice up until today. There are no concerts scheduled for the Izod Center in the Meadowlands until after the Super Bowl. Now that the Jets, the Giants, and Disney has cleared out, preparations for the Super Bowl are underway!

Trucks have begun arriving, according to the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority. Broadcast trailers, food vendors, and security trailers are expected soon.

Next step – security fencing will be installed 300 feet around the perimeter of the Meadowlands rather than the typical 100 feet for regular events. This is considered a Level One security event and security is controlled by the Department of Homeland Security.

Fox Sports will begin doing their cabling work and moving in trailers soon.

Live racing at the Meadowlands track will end on January 22nd and the entire Meadowlands complex will go into a security lockdown on Monday, January 27th.

The last step is the Super Bowl signage and the field logos – that has to wait until we know the names of the teams who will be playing.

Everyone in North Jersey is getting excited to be hosting the first outdoor cold weather Super Bowl!

10 Ways to Burglar Proof Your Home While You’re on Vacation

Angry PirateIf you’re taking a vacation this year, there’s no reason to leave your home unprotected. Here are 10 ways to be sure that burglars don’t choose your home:

  1. Be sure the doors and windows are locked.
  2. Install outdoor lighting that makes entrances to your home visible from the street without causing glare.
  3. Put random lights, televisions, and radios on timers so that anyone watching your home will think you’re still there.
  4. Prune bushes away from your home so that there aren’t any places for a burglar to hide.
  5. Contact your post office and newspaper delivery service and stop delivery while you’re gone, or have a neighbor you trust pick up your deliveries.
  6. Arrange for a neighbor to park in your driveway if you’re taking your car with you.
  7. Close the blinds so that anyone walking by can’t see what goodies you have.
  8. Install an alarm system. Prices vary, but if you leave your home often, it may be worth the $50-$100 per month investment.
  9. Install safety and security window films near windows that are close to door handles to make the windows tough to smash.
  10. Get a dog. And a dog sitter.
Have a great time on your vacations this year, but make sure your home is safe!
