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:

  • Contact Cst. Darren Joseph directly (west of O-Train, Line 2) at josephd@ottawapolice.ca or 613-236-1222, ext. 5871.
  • Contact Cst. Stephanie Lemieux directly (east of O-Train, Line 2) at lemieuxs@ottawapolice.ca or 613-236-1222, ext. 5290
