Fire Safety At Home

Fires and burns are the third leading cause of unintentional home injury and related deaths. You can start practicing fire safety by developing a fire escape plan with your family. Draw a floor plan of your home and find two ways out of every room — the door and maybe the window — and sketch them clearly on the floor plan.Then, be sure to practice a fire drill with your family to make sure everyone knows where to go and what to do if there is a fire in your home.

Water Safety at Home

Young children are vulnerable to hot water burns in the winter and all year round. Closely watch your children every second to make sure they have fun and stay safe in the tub. To protect against scald burns, check your hot water heater to make sure the temperature is set to 100 degrees Fahrenheit and always be sure to run your hand through the water to test for hot spots before letting children in the tub.
