Living Room Safety
Do you have…

Living Room
Furniture away from windows?
Child proof latches or window guards?
Curtains safely away from fireplaces, heaters and lamps?
Window blinds and drapery cords tied out of children's reach?

Tips:
Keep cigarettes, matches and fire starters out of children's reach
Use a fireplace screen even when fireplace is not in use, and remember to clean chimneys every year
Remove breakable glass and other sharp edged furniture from the living room or pad edges with cushioning material
Prevent toppling by keeping TVs and other heavy furniture and electronics on a stable surface far back and against a wall
Keep electrical cords out of reach by taping them to baseboards or running them under furniture (never under carpets or rugs)
