Child Safety At Home & On The Road This Summer

Whether its enjoying the summer sun at home or on the road traveling for vacation, these months are sure to provide families and children with lifelong memories. While this is often a fun and exciting time of year for children, we also understand summer comes with inherent risks and safety issues.

According to Stanford Children’s Health, injuries are a major source of childhood emergency department admissions each year; these injuries are often caused by fire and burns, suffocation, drowning, firearms, falls, chocking, and poisoning. The Children’s Safety Network goes on to note that home and recreation injuries account for one third of the hospital visits noted above.

Additionally, as summer provides children with a break from school, it also lends itself to family vacations and more time on the roads. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration highlights the following statistics related to child passenger safety:

  • 325 children under the age of 5 are saved by car seats in one year.
  • 40% of children killed in car crashes in 2021 were unrestrained.
  • 46% of car seats and booster seats are used incorrectly.
