Safety steps: when carrying a child up or down steps, protect your most important cargo by carrying the child only, leaving one hand free to hold on to the railing.

Prevent Child Injury has posted a new toolkit on stair safety. The toolkit messaging reminds parents and caregivers to protect children by carrying only the child when taking them up and down stairs, leaving one hand free to hold the railing. Toolkit materials include a customizable press release, newsletter/blog article, social media posts, graphics, and a Pinterest board. The toolkit also offers a list of trusted resources from other groups. Toolkit link:
