Safe Kids PA Endorses the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission New Federal Requirements for Cribs
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's new safety standards address the major design flaws that have killed or injured so many infants in recent years, including the so-called "drop-side." The new rules, released June 28, 2011, require manufacturers and retailers to meet new safer crib standards that include making crib hardware more durable and mattress supports stronger. The rules also require more rigorous testing of cribs by manufacturers.
Without power? Keep generators outdoors.Carbon monoxide (CO) is an odorless, invisible killer. Don’t let gas generators bring CO into your home. Stay safe.
Generator Danger Warning
- CO from a generator is deadly and can kill you in minutes. One generator produces as much CO as hundreds of cars. It can kill consumers within minutes.
- NEVER use portable generators indoors or in garages, basements, or sheds. They should always be used outside well away from windows, doors, vents, or any other opening.
- Always have a working CO alarm in your house.
- Never burn charcoal grills indoors, even with ventilation. Charcoal also quickly produces deadly CO.
