Windows Play Critical Role in Home Safety


In just the past day, two Portland metro area children have been injured after falling out of windows.  Both were treated at local area hospitals and are expected to recover.

Fires and falls of all kinds are among the leading causes of injury and death in young children. While some falls occur from windows, it is important to realize that in the event of a fire, a window can also save a child’s life. This is why windows play a critical role in home safety.
