Be part of their child safety conversation at facebook.com/Dreambabysafety REFRESH SKILLS Red Cross is highlighting the need for Australians to refresh their first aid skills for the festive season. Two-thirds of Australians could put their families at risk this summer with outdated first aid procedures. A Red Cross College pool found that although many people said they knew first aid techniques, 50 per cent of people would make the wrong first aid choices in any life-threatening scenarios. Outdoor activities, hot weather and increased time in or near water all contribute to higher accident rates,'' says Red Cross College general manager training services Chris Casey. We, as a nation, are ready and willing to step up in an an emergency situation, however many people are not up-to-date with current life-saving thinking, potentially endangering our loved ones,'' he says. Details: redcross.org.au CHRISTMAS festivity means getting together with loved ones but it is also a time to take special care as many homes need child-proofing. Carolyn Ziegler, product de- velopment manager of Aust- ralian child safety brand Dreambaby, says we often don't think of securing homes for visitors, which can lead to acci- dents with children. ''The first thing to do before anyone arrives is to get down on all fours and look up at the world from the point of view of a crawling child. Its amazing the hidden dangers you will ident- ify,'' says Ms Ziegler. She says start by blocking off power points with outlet plugs and move sharp objects, knives, poisons and medicine out of reach and watch out for sharp corners on tables. ''Place corner cushions on these corners in case a child falls on them. Put (removable) adhesives around corners.'' Move furniture off balconies and install furniture straps. If you have a non-wall mounted TV, install a flat screen saver. • FREE Measure & Quote • 10 Years Guarantee Shop 1 14 Cammeray Road, Cammeray Showroom Open 6 Days www.designarobe.com.au BUILDING LIC NO 204289C 9908 5503 2220426 26/6 WARDROBES Renovating?
