Did you know that every year, a million families around the world lose a child to a preventable injury? Millions more children are injured in ways that can affect them for a lifetime. Too many families don’t have access to the information they need to keep their children safe from tragedies such as drowning, car crashes, fires and falls.

2. Secure furniture and TVs.
3. Check smoke and CO alarms monthly.
