Christina Lewellen, senior editor of Window & Door

The sad stories that often accompany discussions about Window Safety Week are definitely enough to make me—a mother of two young girls—think twice about fall prevention measures.
 
Some of the stories in the March/April AAMA column remind us just how prevalent a safety concern this issue is. As the column points out, window professionals are in an ideal position to help spread the message about fall prevention. AAMA and its partner organizations in the Window Safety Week efforts even offer resources to make it easy for window companies to point out how critical window safety is, especially for households with young children and pets.
 
As Window Safety Week kicks off next week, I’d like to know if your company is doing anything to increase awareness of this issue. Will you send out press releases or host safety seminars? Will you distribute additional information to your customers? Is window safety a cause you highlight year-round?   Please take a moment to send me an email or post a comment describing your company's efforts.
