What: CPSC Announces IAFCS as an AnchorIt! Advocate

Anchor It! is the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) national public education campaign aimed at preventing child deaths and injuries from furniture and TV tip-over incidents.

According to CPSC data, a child in the United States is taken to the emergency room every 30 minutes as a result of a tip-over incident. This campaign is a call to action to ensure that parents and caregivers learn about the dangers of furniture and TV tip-overs in the home, as well as simple, low-cost steps they can take to prevent these tragedies.

CPSC has signed agreements with the following organizations as the campaign’s first official Anchor It! Advocates and Community Leaders:

• American Academy of Pediatrics
