About 2.5 million children are injured or killed by hazards in the home each year.
Here are some child-safety devices that can help prevent many injuries to young children.
For older miniblinds, cut the cord loop, remove the buckle, and put safety tassels on each cord. Be sure that older vertical blinds and drapery cords have tension or tie-down devices to hold the cords tight. When buying new miniblinds, vertical blinds and draperies, ask for safety features to prevent child strangulation.
