Winter is Coming: A Cold-Weather Safety Checklist

Here are some important winter safety tips to help keep you and your family safe

Designated Driver

When someone turns on the ignition of a car while under the influence of alcohol, all of us are at risk. That is especially true for kids who are along for the ride in a passenger seat, and others who share the roads with drivers.

The weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day are arguably the busiest of the year. Families are planning trips to visit relatives, searching for thoughtful gifts, preparing special meals and many other tasks to make the holidays the most wonderful time of the year.

Registering your car seat

So no more guessing about recalls. We all have other things to worry about. No fuss, no muss. Complete and mail the registration card – it’s a small, but important step in making sure your child is riding as safely as possible.   

Laundry Safety Blog

Since 2012 when liquid laundry packets began gaining traction in the market, more than 33,000 calls for children 5 and under have been reported to poison centers about children getting into liquid laundry packets. That’s more than 30 children every single day.

We talk a lot about safe storage and the importance of keeping medicine up and away, out of reach of children. And that’s important: In 67 percent of emergency room visits for medicine poisoning, the medicine was left within reach of a child, such as in a purse, on a counter or dresser or on the ground.

What is equally important, though, is safe dosing.

Making the case for wall-mounted TVs

I was 30 when I gave myself a concussion by pulling a TV onto my head. I’d be willing to bet that this doesn’t happen to many adults (unless they are generally clumsy humans, like me).

But did you know that in the past 10 years, a child has visited the emergency room every 45 minutes because of a TV tipping over? And unfortunately, these preventable injuries can sometimes be fatal.

holiday shopping tips

As the weather gets chilly and holiday anticipation begins to grow, it’s time to start making lists – lists for Thanksgiving dinner, lists for Santa, lists for winter-weather preparation, and, of course, lists for holiday shopping.

Before you join the crowd on Black Friday to kick-start your holiday shopping, here are a few important things to add to your list.

It’s that time of year again. On Sunday, November 2, the clocks go back, the days get shorter and families get an extra precious hour of sleep.

But what you may not know is that Daylight Savings is also a great time to check your smoke alarms to make sure the batteries are fresh.
