Staircase Safety In The Home
Every year many accidents occur in our very own homes, and many of these accidents occur around staircases involving young children. Of course these accidents do not have to occur and in many cases can be prevented. Many children who are not competent walkers yet fall down stairs do to bad balance causing injury. While other older children fall down stairs do to slick surfaces most often because it is a wooden staircase and they are in their socks. By using gates to prevent falls at the tops of staircases and utilizing carpet or enforcing house slippers kids can have less of a danger in their own homes through staircases. Those at Amber Alert GPS child locator want all kids to grow up happy and healthy.
