If you have multi-story home or even single story with raised platforms, consider the stair safety tips to protect everyone in your household.

* In homes with young children, use sturdy safety gates at the top and bottom of stairways.
* All stairways and steps, no matter how short should have handrails on both sides.
* Install bright lights with on and off switches at the top and bottom of each stairwell and over porches and entryways.
* Keep stairways and steps clear of all the objects. Never use the stairs for temporary storage or for displaying decorative items.
