Injury Prevention

Fireplaces

  • Watch children closely when using the fireplace.
  • Use a heavyweight screen to prevent your baby from getting too close to the fire.
  • Cover your hearth’s sharp edges with a fire-resistant hearth cover to protect your child from bumps and bruises.
  • Make sure that your chimney is clean and safe to use. Have it inspected once each year.
