Around the Home

Your home is the place you feel the safest. But just because you feel safe there, it doesn’t mean you need to stop worrying about safety.

Consider that:

  • The majority of choking incidents involving children happen in the home.
  • Nine out of 10 poisonings happen in the home.
  • Deaths from televisions tipping over are at an all-time high.
  • The number of children who swallow button batteries has jumped dramatically.
  • Ninety percent of all fire-related deaths in the United States are from blazes started within the home.
