Furniture/TV Tip-Overs

TipOver

Make sure your furniture and TVs are secure from tip-overs! 

The Carbondale Fire Department would like you to be aware of the dangers of children climbing on furniture. 

Tips to avoid possible childhood injuries and death:

  • Use brackets and straps to keep your TV secure.
  • Place the TV far back on the stand, out of the reach of little hands.
  • Tuck cords away to keep children from pulling on them.
  • Attach furniture to the wall using anti-tip devices.
  • Store heavier things on the bottom shelves.
  • Keep fun things on lower shelves, within children’s reach.

For more information, please visit the IAFF’s Furniture and TV Tip-Over Toolkit.
