Lastly, the checklist should be customized for your property. Just like in aviation, if you don\'t have a checklist for your specific property, you don\'t have a real checklist. Generic won\'t cut it. Do you have a second freezer? It should be documented. Multiple air conditioning units? Absolutely. Specialized lights, landscaping systems, plumbing systems or high_end vehicles need special checks and memory isn\'t what you want to rely on. If the service starts with a comprehensive checklist that is then tailored for your property, you are getting an expert. Make sure they record your special needs and add them to their list during the initial sign up interview. Checklists have saved many lives and airplanes in aviation. Applied to your snowbird home, they can do the same. But keep in mind these three key elements when you are interviewing home watch companies.
As a relief/substitute teacher, you see many great ideas created by teachers. Here is one such idea. Items one to nine, below, were on a poster with the title, \"Writing Checklist\" in a Year Three class classroom. What follows each item in the checklist below is what I would explain to my class about each item. (I have reorganised the original checklist into ideas I feel fit together, e.g. presentation). Have I read my writing? Does my writing have all the ideas I wanted to include? Does my writing make sense? Is the story in the right sequence? Are there any confusing words or phrases? Have I left out any words? You can leave out \'little\' words because your mind works faster than you can write. The next four deal with the presentation, particularly punctuation. Do my sentences begin with a capital letter and end with a full stop?
