- According to Crime Doctor, upper floors are safer from crime, but worse for fire rescue.
- Doors should be self-closing and self-locking. Room doors should have a deadbolt lock with at least a one-inch throw bolt.
- Make sure all windows and sliding doors are secured, if they are accessible from the ground. It is a good idea to test all windows and glass doors to see if they are secure.
“Always request a room on an upper floor to reduce crime exposure. Ground floor rooms are more vulnerable to crime problems because of access and ease of escape. In a high-rise building, rooms above the fifth-floor are usually safer from crime than those below because of lesser accessibility and ease of escape.Also, rooms not adjacent to fire stairs are safer from room intruders because they use the stairs for escape.”
