Keeping Kids Safe


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration hosts a "Keeping Kids Safe" page featuring the 6 most common vehicle dangers that even the most careful parents can overlook, and how to avoid them. The dangers include backover, heat stroke, power windows, vehicle rollaway, seat belt entanglement, and trunk entrapment.

Disposing of Needles and Syringes


  • Place needles and syringes in a hard plastic (ex: laundry detergent bottles) or metal container with a tightly secured lid. (The container should be labeled “Syringes,” “Sharps,” or “Needles.”)
  • Keep the container out of the reach of children and pets.
  • When the container is full, seal and reinforce its lid with heavy-duty tape.
  • Dispose of the sealed container in the household trash. Learn more.
