Window Falls are Everyone’s Responsibility

August 31, 2018

 

Window Safety

 

Keep furniture or anything a child can climb away from windows.

 

Only allow windows to open 4 inches and install a window stop to keep children from opening them further. (Be sure an adult can open them in an emergency).

 

If you open windows wider than 4 inches, install window guards that can be removed by an adult in an emergency.

 

Teach your children about window safety. “Screens keep bugs out; they do not keep kids in”.

 

Teach them to play a safe distance from windows and enforce this rule in your home. (i.e. We play 2 (big) steps away from windows).

 

Share this information with grandparents, childcare providers, friends and neighbors that children visit.
