National Kidsafe Day

National Kidsafe Day was held on 22nd October 2013.

Kidsafe NSW participated in a number of community events around National Kidsafe Day extending over 2 weeks! 

Blind and Curtain Cords

Loose blind and curtain cords or chains - particularly those with loops – are dangerous to young children. Small children have died as a result of strangulation after becoming entangled in loose cords.

As part of a nation-wide campaign, NSW Fair Trading is urging parents to check and fix dangerous blind and curtain cords to help prevent more deaths. 

Kids in Cars

On a typical Australian summer day, the temperature inside a parked car can be as much as 30 degrees to 40 degrees hotter than the outside temperature.

Imagine even on a day of approximately 20 degrees, the temperature inside a closed car could be up to 60 degrees!

Iron Safe Sale!

'Iron Safe' is a special compartment that allows the storage of a hot iron. It has a space for the cord and prevents children from pulling the iron onto themselves.
