Operation I.D.

We all know we need to mark our valuables in some way — just in case. It’s just a matter of taking the time to do it. If you received a shiny new TV or laptop or really, anything valuable as a Christmas gift, you may be more apt to mark it now, while you’re thinking about it, rather than later on.

The Township has an engraver kit that you can check out and borrow to mark any and all of your valuable electronics, tools, etc. Just call Neighborhood Services at 281-210-3800. They recommend recording your driver’s license number, but actually, any number at all that you can claim as yours will do. (I wouldn’t put my social security number on anything though!) They also recommend that you record the serial numbers of large valuables and take a photo of small ones, such as jewelry.

Oh, and while we’re on the subject of safety, it’s a good idea to photocopy the front and back of every one of your credit cards and bank cards too. Put these away in a safe place, just in case you ever lose your wallet or purse. It’s much easier to call the various card-issuers when you have their numbers handy. And remember,  you’ll never need any of this information — until you do…
