“Click, Check and Protect” Campaign - School Safety Alert Program   
Recalled products are one of the top hidden hazards in the home. The national School Safety Coalition is trying to help protect children by getting vital safety and recall information to every school and every parent. It has just launched the “Click, Check and Protect” Campaign to help safeguard children and inform parents, educators and caregivers about the potential dangers of recalled products. We encourage you to visit the web site www.clickcheckandprotect.org  and/or view the explanatory video directly http://video.consumerreports.org/services/player/bcpid80023687001?bctid=80131496001. Please feel free to share this important safety alert information with other groups and organizations in your community and help us keep children safe.
