Window safety

Unfortunately, children fall from windows in homes and apartments. The threat is real. These tragedies can lead to severe and permanent brain injuries, broken bones or death.

This can happen when a child is playing near an open window. It can also happen if a landlord does not fix old rotting windows or if new windows are not properly installed.

Inspect the windows your home. Do a quick survey of all rooms to see whether there is any furniture, such as a bed, dresser, table or couch, situated next to an open window onto which a small child could climb.
