Teach your kids to be DOOR SAFE!

Posted Wednesday, November 18th, 2015


One of the most overlooked “appliances” in your home is the garage door. Press a button and it goes up. Press it again and It goes down. Pretty simple, right? Not exactly. The garage door is the heaviest and most dangerous appliance in your home. In honor of Child Safety Protection Month, Cressy Door and Fireplace is sharing the IDA’s (International Door Association) DOOR SAFE teaching guide.

November is Child Safety Protection Month


  1. DOORS are heavy – never stand, run or play under or near a any garage door, especially when the door is open or moving.
  2. OPENERS are for adults – never play with the button on the wall that opens and closes the garage door.
  3. OUCH! – never touch any part of a moving garage door. Your fingers and hands can get hurt.
  4. REMOTES are for adults – never play with the remote controls in the car or on Mom & Dad’s keychain.

Please help us keep your children safe. Review the DOOR SAFE information with your children monthly. Remember to keep garage door opener transmitters and remotes out of the reach of children. The garage door opener button should be installed at least five feet from the floor.

The team at Cressy Door and Fireplace wishes you a safe holiday season.
