Wash your hands– Hand washing is the greatest germ prevention!

Stay warm- Cold weather can bring illness.  Dress in layers and stay dry.

Keep children away from the stove– The stove can put off heat up to 3 feet away!

Always wear a seat belt– Make sure that seat is appropriate for child’s age.

Child proof homes– Check the homes that you visit and child proof as needed.  Place household chemicals, cords and choking hazards out the reach of children.

Keep knives out of reach of children!

Store matches and lighters in locked cabinets, out of the reach of children.

Never leave children alone with a burning candle.

Keep children away from hot liquids or food.

Make sure that all smoke alarms work.  Test them frequently.

Vaccinate yourself and children to prevent diseases.

Know CPR and be educated on how to help a child if he/she is choking.
