Did you know your bedroom window was dangerous to your children?

Approximately 4,700 children ages 14 and younger are injured from falling out a window each year. About 18 children ages 10 and under die annually from these falls.

Here are some tips on preventing these types of accidents:

  • A screen will not prevent a fall- don’t think it will.
  • Install windows that open from the top. If you need to open the window for fresh air, use the top window.
  • Safeguard your windows with window stops. You can find window stops at any hardware department.
  • Make sure that there is not any furniture placed near the window. Often children will climb the furniture and fall out the window.
  • Supervise your children if there is an open window.
