Home Safety Tips from HomeSafetyCouncil.org

A statistic that continues to alarm me personally is the fact that our homes are the second most common location of fatal injuries in the U.S., with our highways being first. The top five leading causes of unintentional home injury death are falls, poisoning, fire/burn, choking/suffocation, and drowning.  Children under 5 and adults over 70 are at highest risk for injury in the home.

At HomeSafetyCouncil.org, you can go to the Safety Guide page; there,you will find dozens of different hazards in the home.  There are illustrated checklists and safety tips for each hazard listed.  I can venture to guess that most of us have room for improvement when it comes to safety in the home.  This is certainly a reminder to me to set up a plan of escape for my family in case of fire or other disaster, for example. And I'm definitely past due for a new fire extinguisher.

In the Resource Center, there are also downloadable materials, guides, brochures, kid-friendly pages, bilingual materials and items for purchase. If you have some time and are curious to know how you can make your home safer, The Home Safety Council is definitely worth checking out.

Be safe!
