Secure your windows to prevent injury
This week, the Ottawa Police responded to a call where a child fell from an open window and suffered injury. With the warmer weather upon us, there is a stronger likelihood that windows are open, creating a safety risk potential for children to fall out.
It is important to secure access to your windows. Here are some safety tips to keep children safe:
- Lock your window closed at all times when you cannot supervise a small child around this falling hazard
- Install window guards
- Put up window stoppers
- Move furniture away from windows (there are more accidents when furniture is near a window).
- Remove the cranks from crank-open windows to keep kids from opening them.
To make a police report:
