Window Safety TIPS

Make sure windows are not painted or nailed shut. You must be able to open them to escape in an emergency.

Keep windows and doors locked when children are around. If you must open a window, open one that a child cannot reach.

Keep furniture or anything a child can climb on away from windows

Set and enforce rules about keeping children's play away from windows and sliding doors.

Screens are not designed, nor will they prevent a child's fall from a window. Screens are for ventilation only and to keep the bugs out.

If you use a window guard system, be aware that it must have a release mechanism so that they can be opened for escape in the event of a fire emergency. Check with your local fire department or code enforcement for proper placement of window guards.

Plant shrubs and use soft edging like wood chips or grass under windows to cushion potential falls. The surface you land on can greatly affect the degree of injury sustained from the fall.
