Window Safety

PREVENTING WINDOW FALLS

Every year, thousands of young children are killed or injured in falls from windows. To help prevent these tragedies, take the following actions ...especially for windows in bedrooms.

Safeguard your windows with window guards or window stops.

  • Install window guards to prevent children from falling out of windows. (For windows on the 6th floor and below, install install window guards that adults and older children can open easily in case of fire)
  • Install window stops so that the windows open no more than 4 inches.
  • Never depend on screens to keep children from falling out of windows.
  • Whenever possible, open windows from the top -- not the bottom.
  • Keep furniture away from windows , to discourage children from climbing near windows.
