Safety and Security

This page is provided as a public service of Code Electric.  Here, we provide you with a wealth of downloadable information so you can increase your security in a world of increasing threats.  No one likes the thought of becoming a victim, but it is those who are prepared in advance who are far less likely to become such a statistic. Most of this information is considered 'public domain,' so feel free to download, save and print it.  

These files are in Portable Document File (.pdf) format and we have attempted to keep the files as small as possible so they will download in minimum time for our dial-up customers.  They can be viewed, saved & printed using Adobe Acrobat Reader.   If you do not have Adobe Acrobat Reader, click here.
