Summer is here, and we know you want to get outdoors with the kids. Whether it is swimming, riding a bike, taking a summer night stroll or even just opening a window to let that Florida breeze in, safety should always come first. The following simple steps will keep your loved ones safe now and in the future:
The CPSC estimates that nearly 300 children under 5 years old drown each year in swimming pools and spas.
Sadly, more than 200,000 children go to U.S. hospital emergency rooms each year with injuries from playground equipment.
An average of 7 children die and thousands are injured in falls from windows each year.
This might seem shocking, but 35,000 people are treated in hospital emergency rooms each year for injuries associated with walk-behind power mowers and riding lawn mowers.
There were more than 530,000 injuries associated with bicycles in US hospital emergency rooms in 2013.
