Window Safety Week – April 1st – 7th
April 1, 2019
Windows let the sunshine and cool breezes in but have you considered them a hazard in your home?
- Inspect all windows. Are any painted or nailed shut? Are those windows that may be needed for escape from a fire?
- Do not place furniture under windows. Items placed under windows provide easy access to window openings, increasing the chance of a child falling out of the window.
- Make sure all windows have locks or window guards.
- Screens are meant to keep bugs out, not to keep children in. A child can easily push a screen out of place and fall.
