Check TVs

  • Assess the stability of the TVs in your home

Secure TVs

  • Mount flat screen TVs to the wall to reduce the risk of TVs toppling off stands. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure you protect your wall and have a secure fit
  • If you have a large, heavy, old-style cathode ray tube (CRT) TV place it on a low, stable piece of furniture

Secure Furniture

  • Use brackets, braces or wall straps to secure unstable or top-heavy furniture to the wall
  • Install stops on dresser drawers to prevent them from being pulled all the way out. Multiple open drawers can cause the weight to shift, making it easier for a dresser to fall.

Rearrange Household Items

  • Keep heavier items on lower shelves or in lower drawers
  • Avoid placing remote controls, food, toys or other items in places where kids might be tempted to climb up or reach for them
