September is REALTOR® Safety Month

realtor-safety-logoThe National Association of REALTORS®  established the REALTOR® Safety Program more than a decade ago to empower and inform members of the potential risks they face in this profession and how to navigate them safely. The entire month of September is designated REALTOR® Safety Month and is dedicated to bringing more awareness to REALTOR® safety among members.

NAR’s REALTOR® Safety Program has also expanded its distribution of safety tips. Every Monday, NAR now shares safety tips via its Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts. The image-based tips offer safety information on an assortment of topics, including open house safety, garage safety, cyber security, home security and more. These tips can easily be shared with and by associations, members and clients.

These new and expanded safety resources for members and associations—including materials to share in the office, online or for safety presentations; videos; articles; and archived webinars—are available online at www.realtor.org/safety . Information on safety smartphone apps and safety products are also available as well as a list of safety experts.
