Some other tips for family safety and security are:

– Be ready to administer first aid. Keep a first aid kit in your home and car, and check it regularly to make sure it has all the necessary supplies and nothing has expired. Learn how to perform basic first aid skills, such as CPR, wound care, and the Heimlich maneuverĀ¹.
– Prevent household poisonings. Store medicines, cleaning products, and other hazardous substances in locked cabinets or out of reach of children and pets. Read labels carefully and follow directions when using them. Dispose of unused or expired medications properly. Call the poison control center at +1-800-222-1222 or text POISON to 797979 if you suspect a poisoningĀ².
– Get rid of tripping hazards. Falls are a common cause of injuries for people of all ages. To prevent falls, secure cords and wires that cross over walkways, use rug pads to keep rugs in place, install handrails and grab bars in stairs and bathrooms, and use nightlights or motion-sensor lights in dark areasĀ¹Ā².
– Be prepared for emergencies. Make a family emergency plan that covers what to do in case of fire, earthquake, flood, or other disasters. Include where to meet, how to communicate, and what to pack in an emergency kit. Practice your plan regularly and update it as neededĀ¹Ā².
– Use internet safety tools and practices. Protect your family from online threats, such as cyberbullying, identity theft, malware, and online predators. Use antivirus software, strong passwords, parental controls, and content filters on your devices. Educate your family about how to avoid phishing emails, suspicious links, and oversharing personal information onlineĀ²Ā³.
