It’s the season for Spring cleaning and getting kids outdoors to play, but there are safety precautions to consider at the start of the sunny seasons.

Did you know that on average, one child dies every 10 days when a TV or furniture falls onto him or her, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Commission.

Let’s use #SaludTues on Tuesday, April 10, 2018, to tweet about the latest at-home safety and health, and preventative measures that can help Latino kids and their families. 

We’ll open the floor to your comments, tips, and stories as we explore:

  • Why is the Spring season a good time to remind people to safeguard their homes to avoid accidents that impact kids’ health?
  • Is it true that, in general, people believe that a tip over incident or other at-home accident won’t happen to them?
  • What general health and safety precautions should parents, grandparents, and guardians take in getting ready for the Spring and Summer seasons?
  • What resources are available on Latino childhood health and safety?

Be sure to use the hashtag #SaludTues to follow the conversation on Twitter and share stories and resources to help Latinos and their families stay healthy and safe at home.
