"With the summer coming up, and schools letting out, there are all sorts of reasons why this is a very important time for people to make sure their families and homes are safe," warns Ron Riddlespriger, Chief Operating Officer for High-Tech Security Systems. "Neighborhood and private pools are opened, families go on vacation, and everybody is generally away from their homes more and enjoying the weather.  This creates an ideal situation for crime and accidents to occur."

The Summer Safety Giveaway contest runs through July 5th, where a winner will be drawn and notified via email.  There is no cost to enter.  Simply go the High-Tech's website,, and click on the "Register to Win" button.  No purchase is required—simply an email address and your name.
