Begins Installing Safety Decals
Fort Campbell, KY – Windows play a vital role in home safety, serving as a secondary escape route in the event of a fire or other emergency. The Window Safety Task Force of the National Safety Council reminds parents that, while windows play a vital role, they can also pose a risk for a fall in the home if other safety measures are not followed. To help promote window safety awareness, Campbell Crossing recently began a window safety awareness campaign to supplement the safety training initially provided to all Residents during orientation. The campaign highlights tips to help prevent falls from windows. As another way to remind parents of those dangers, Campbell Crossing is also starting to distribute window safety decals.
Beginning July 5th, Campbell Crossing will begin distributing window decals during routine and preventative maintenance service calls. The decals will adhere to all upstairs bedroom windows, reminding parents of the risks associated with windows. We anticipate this task taking only a few minutes and expect that it will present no inconvenience.
“We at Campbell Crossing want to make sure that these falls never happen at Fort Campbell,” says Mike Goodwin, Campbell Crossing Deputy Project Director. “When it comes to window safety, there’s no substitute for the adult supervision of children, but there are safety measures that may mitigate risks and we hope these decals and safety tips will help.”
