Safety Reminder:

As the weather becomes nicer we tend to start opening our windows at home. This increases the risk of children falling out of windows.

Falls are the #1 cause of injury hospitalization for children in the US.

Children are curious by nature, top heavy by design, and can fall through a window opened more than 4 inches.

Any fall through a window is dangerous, even if the child is on the first floor of the home.

Please know that YOU can prevent window falls!

Follow these tips for safety:

  • Limit openings to four inches or less by using a window stop device.
  • Keep furniture away from windows to discourage little climbers.
  • Teach children not to play near windows.
  • And always remember that screens keep bugs out, not kids in!
