Safety tips for parents and caregivers include:

Up and Away and Out of Sight is supported by members of the PROTECT Initiative, which include: CDC, government agencies, non-profit organizations, professional organizations, industry partners, and academic representatives. The program includes a website, multimedia content and downloadable materials for parents and
