Are Your Windows Safe?

Windows are 1 of the top 5 home hazards for kids, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Here’s how to make your windows child-safe:

  • Cut off or tie up dangling cords on drapes and blinds.
  • Mark sliding doors and expanses of glass with stickers.
  • Make sure windows have locks so that they can be opened to allow air in but not so that a child could fall out.
  • Never depend on screens to prevent a child from falling out of a window.
  • Don’t put furniture that a child could climb on near windows.
  • Keep windows closed and locked when you're not using them.
