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.
