Roman shades and blinds - Huge recall by CPSC

Consumer Product Safety Commission Recall focuses on child safety:

The CPSC has issued updated recalls for several types of Roman shades and blinds.
The recall is for items sold at Wal-Mart, Pottery Barn, IKEA and Target.

Customers that have Roman or roll-up shades in their homes should contact the Window Covering Safety Council immediately at or by calling (800) 506-4636 anytime to receive a free repair kit to make the window coverings safe.

In the meantime, the CPSC is urging anyone with young children to remove any blinds or shades that have cords attached. They also advised parents not to place cribs, beds or other furniture close to windows because children can climb on the furniture and reach the cords.

Cordless window coverings are recommended for all homes where children live or visit.

In case of emergency - FHP wants your information

The Florida Highway Patrol is encouraging all drivers to use their computers to log in their emergency contact information. More than 700,000 Floridians have done this, so far.
However, there are over 18 million licensed drivers and ID card holders in our state who have not done this, yet.

So, if you hold a valid Florida driver's license or if you have a valid Florida ID card, PLEASE
go to your computer or go to a library and use a computer to enter your emergency contact information.

If you are ever involved in an automobile accident, or any other altercation, your information will be on file. Please understand that the information that you supply will be kept secure and is only used by law enforcement officials in case of emergency.
