Healthy Homes
Everyone needs a healthy home. However, did you know that some of the most serious
health and safety problems may start at home? Did you know that your chances of getting hurt
at home are much higher than they are at work or school? Very young children and older adults
are the people most likely to get hurt at home. In the U.S., most people spend over 90% of their
time indoors. We need to be aware of the health and safety of our indoor environments.
There are steps and resources that can help us keep our homes safe. (Agency name)
is
sponsoring a program at (time)
on
(date)
at (location). This program covers
safety in the indoor environment. The program will address hazards such as falls, fire,
poisonings, drowning, suffocation, choking and guns. Additional helpful resources will be given.
For more information or to register for the program call or email (agency name) at (phone
number) or (email address).
