When my oldest son, Terrell, was 2 years old, he was quite the little terror – I mean angel. Like many kids, he was super busy and got into everything. One day he gave me a scare when he climbed a stool by the counter in our kitchen and grabbed my mug of hot tea. I’m talking right out the kettle, super-hot tea.
I was so glad I noticed. If the tea had spilled on him, he could have suffered from a horrible burn.
Launched in Pune, the Safe Kids at Home program seeks to prevent and reduce burns and scald injuries among children.
On average, one child dies each day from a fire or burn. Working smoke alarms reduce the chance of dying in a home fire by half.
Safe Kids works with a wide variety of home safety areas that can impact your growing child.
Safe Kids groups injuries by the place that they occur: in the home, in the car and on the road, or during sports and play.
Congratulations on your new baby. You're going to be a great parent, and we'll be right here with you so you're not alone. September is Baby Safety Month so it’s a perfect time for these 5 safety tips.
Safe Kids at Home: Fire and Burn Prevention Program will reach more than 6,000 children in Kuala Lumpur
Childproof Your Electrical Outlets and Appliances
- Keep appliance cords out of children's reach, especially if the appliances produce a lot of heat.
- Cover electrical outlets so that children are unable to insert metal objects, such as forks or keys.
Home Safety curriculum, lesson plans, and activities for the classroom.
National Fire Prevention Week spans from October 6-12 this year. The theme is “Prevent Kitchen Fires.” Every day, at least one child dies from a home fire and every hour about 14 children are injured from fires or burns.
As someone very familiar with kitchen fires (check out this blog), I am glad to see that the focus this year will be on kitchen safety. From experienced chefs to those of us who struggle making popcorn, it’s important to remember safety tips for in the kitchen.
