Safer in 7 – tips from our friends at Family Voices and Safe Kids USA

  1. Jiggle your kid’s car seat. If it moves more than 1 inch at the base, tighten it up.
  2. Secure furniture and TVs. Mount flat screens and keep bulky-style TVs on a low and stable base.
  3. Check smoke and CO alarms. Replace devices every 10 years. Replace batteries every year.
  4. Scan your home for places kids can get into medicine. It is pills in purses, vitamins on counters, and medicine in daily reminder boxes that curious kids get into.
  5. Check around your house for coin-sized button batteries.
  6. Ask your kid’s coaches if they have had concussion or safety training.
  7. Take Action Against Distraction.
