June is Fire Safety Month


from Health and Wellness Resource Center

June is National Home Safety Month. According to Safe Kids USA, although unintentional injury deaths of children have significantly decreased in the United States since the late 1980s, thousands of children still die every year from accidents including, but not limited to, falls, fires and burns, bicycle accidents, car accidents and drownings. In fact accidents are the most common cause of deaths in children ages 1 to 14 — more common than deaths by all childhood diseases combined, and the vast majority of these accidents happen at home. Furthermore, according to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) unintentional injuries are the most common cause of death for people ages 1 to 44.
