Preventing Holiday Accidents

December 13, 2017

PREVENTING HOLIDAY ACCIDENTS Nothing is more important than keeping your little ones safe. Yet every minute, 17 children go to the emergency room with unintentional injuries – that’s 9.2 million accidents that didn’t have to happen every year.
It’s often small decisions – a candle left burning, a dry Christmas tree or child left alone even for a moment – that could have life-changing consequences. When it comes to holiday dangers, the numbers are even more startling than you might think:
– Each year, fires occurring during the holiday season claim the lives of more than 400 Americans, injure 1,650 more, and cause more than $990 million in damage.
– Candle-related fires are one of the most common holiday hazards, averaging more than 12,000 each year, resulting in 136 deaths, more than 1,000 injuries and $450 million in direct property damage.
– About 5,800 people – two to three every hour – were treated in emergency departments for fall-related injuries sustained while decorating during the holiday seasons.
– Christmas trees, both natural and artificial, were the item first ignited in an estimated average of 240 reported home structure fires per year. These fires caused an estimated average of 13 civilian deaths, 27 civilian injuries and $16.7 million in direct property damage per year.
By taking simple steps, we have an opportunity to help change these statistics together. Committing a minute to safety can be as quick and easy as testing your smoke alarm, taking pillows out of the crib or simply using a cabinet lock. Imagine if every parent committed just one minute to safety every day? Thousands, perhaps millions, of injuries could be avoided. Parents today have a powerful opportunity to raise a safer generation of children, and it can all start by committing just one minute to safety.
