To help prevent TV tip-overs, Safe Kids Worldwide and CTA launched National TV Safety Day, the day before the Super Bowl.
National TV Safety Day raises awareness about TV tip-overs and educates parents and caregivers about the simple things they can do to make their homes safer. We're asking families to add one important, and perhaps overlooked, task to their big game prep. Do a quick check of their homes and make sure their TVs are safely secured and properly placed.
CTA also encourages its members to use the following flyer in their users' manuals. If you would like to customize these documents to your company's needs, please contact Bill Belt.
