October is Window Covering Safety Month!
Nearly one child a month dies after becoming entangled in a window-covering cord. Considered one of the top hidden dangers in the home, accessible window covering cords pose a deadly strangulation hazard to young children nationwide. Action leads to prevention.
How to Stay Safe At Home
To prevent window covering cord strangulation:
* Use cordless or inaccessible cord window coverings in homes where young children live or visit.
* Examine all shades and blinds for accessible cords on the front, side and back.
* Do not place cribs, beds and furniture close to the windows.
* Check regularly that cords are out of reach of young children and cannot form dangerous loops.
