Window Safety

 Unfortunately, each year we receive calls about children who fell out of windows. Typically, the child is young. Generally, the child was not being supervised. Almost always, a screen gave way. In an effort to help prevent these traumatic falls through education, Cubbon & Associates shares tips from the National Safety Council: • Avoid placing furniture young children can climb on near windows. • Do not lean on screens or rely on them to prevent a window fall. Insect screens are designed to keep bugs out, not to keep children in the home. • Supervise children to prevent them from playing near windows, balconies or patio doors. • Install building code-compliant devices such as window guards (with quick-release mechanisms in case of fire). • Teach your children how to safely use a window to escape during an emergency. http://www.nsc.org/Pages/NationalWindowSafetyWeek,April.aspx
