The National Safety Council says that "Window Safety Week coincides with the arrival of spring, when homeowners naturally want to open the windows and let in fresh air.  Its goal is two fold: For families to understand the role of windows in escaping a fire or other emergency and to learn to safeguard against accidental window falls."
Every room should have two ways to exit -- usually, that is at least one door and one window.  The National Safety Council offers these window safety tips as part of your escape plan.
    1. Make sure windows are not nailed or painted shut
    2. Do not install air conditioners in windows that may be needed for escape
    3. Develop an emergency escape plan and practice it during the day and night
        If you have small children, you have safety issues to consider.  Each year,    
       children fall from windows, suffering injuries serious enough to
        send them to the hospital; sadly, about eight children a year die from these falls.
The following are some safety tips to consider:
    1. Avoid the placement of furniture near windows
    2. Do not rely on insect screens to prevent a window fall
    3. Keep children's play away from open windows and doors
    4. Install building code-compliant devices designed to limit how far a window opens
    5. Teach you child how to safely use a window to escape in an emergency
