After a particularly brutal winter, the warm weather has finally returned to Massachusetts! And while we’re all anxious to open our windows and let the nice weather in, if you have kids at home, please do so carefully. Thousands of children are sent to the Emergency Department every year after falling out of windows. Some of these falls are mild, while some result in serious, even fatal, injuries. But the one thing all these accidents have in common is they are preventable.

Please share this info graphic with anyone you know who has children at home whom you want to keep safe around windows!

NOTE: If you are a resident of Boston you can purchase Guardian Angel window guards at cost from the Boston Building Resources website.
