Free Safety App - “Child Ready Home Safety Tool”

 

The New Mexico Child Ready Program presents the “Home Safety Tool.”

This interactive and visually engaging tool takes you through a home, room

by room and in the front and backyard, to identify common hazards and view

safety tips to prevent childhood injuries at home.

 

Children losing their life to a preventable injury is a global epidemic.

Even more children are treated in emergency departments each year for a

multitude of preventable injuries. These are often serious injuries that can

affect them for a lifetime. This tool is designed to educate parents, families

and caregivers to keep children safe from tragedies such as drowning, car

crashes, burns, falls and many more.

 

TOOL FEATURES:

  • Easy to use and navigate
  • View each potential hazard in rich 3D graphics
  • Each area or room is clearly organized by a designated color
  • Clear, concise safety tips were compiled by the New Mexico Department of Health in collaboration with Children, Youth and Families Department.
