Holiday Safety Tips
While the winter holiday season is a joyous time for tradition and family gatherings, it also can create opportunities for tragic, unintentional injuries to occur.
Falls are the number-one cause of injury to children and elderly.
During the holiday season across the United States, approximately two to three people every hour are treated in Emergency Departments for fall-related injuries sustained while decorating. (CDC, 2004)
From Thanksgiving through New Years Day there is an increase of severe burn injuries.
