If you find yourself in an emergency lockout situation to your house, here are some steps you can take:
Stay calm: It’s natural to feel frustrated or panicked, but it’s important to stay calm and avoid taking any rash actions.
Try to gain entry: Check all doors and windows to see if any are open or can be easily opened. If you have a spare key hidden outside, see if you can find it.
Call for help: If you’re unable to gain entry, call a trusted friend or family member who has a spare key. If that’s not an option, consider calling a locksmith to come and help you.
Check for alternative entry points: If you’re unable to gain entry through the front door, check to see if there are any other entry points such as a back door or window.
Stay safe: If you’re unable to gain entry and are worried about your safety, consider finding a safe place to wait until help arrives. This could be a neighbour’s house, a nearby business or a public area.
Remember, it’s always a good idea to have a spare key in a safe and accessible location or to give a copy to a trusted friend or family member in case of emergencies.
