Entrance/Exit - Child safety

Additional considerations for a small child are to use alarms on doors in the event a small child tries to leave the home.

Install locks on doors to entrance/exit that are high & uanble to be unlocked by small child.  Child safety devices are available for most all door handles.

rails should be no wider than 4 inches for stairs of one or more so small child will not fit through & fall or injure self
