Centers for Disease Control (CDC) hosts: Safe Sleep For Infants webinar
Each year about 3,500 babies in the United States die suddenly and unexpectedly before they reach their first birthday due to sleep-related deaths. These tragedies, called sudden unexpected infant death (SUID), often occur during sleep or in the baby’s sleep area, and include sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), accidental suffocation and strangulation in bed, and other deaths from unknown causes.
In the 1990s, a dramatic reduction in sleep-related infant deaths followed the release of recommendations and campaigns including Back-to-Sleep (now known as Safe to Sleep®). However, rates of SUIDs have remained relatively flat since 2001 and racial and ethnic disparities persist. Differences in how the causes of these deaths are reported limit our understanding and prevention efforts.
Watch the live webcast on CDC’s Facebook page, October 23 at 1pm ET.* If you are unable to attend, send your questions to email@example.com.

Toledo School District announced:
In the past two decades, students across our nation have experienced violence occurring at school. In response to this, Toledo School District has adopted ALICE, a proactive approach to help keep our students and staff safe in the event of a violent incident at one of our schools.
ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate and offers multiple options for students and staff in the case that they are put in danger.
In the month of November all students in Toledo School District will be trained, at an age appropriate level, by a certified ALICE instructor.
The middle school will train on November 2nd.
The elementary school on November 8th.
The high school on November 15th.
Please note, any ALICE drills that are done within the district will always be announced as drills. If you’d like additional information on this training please contact the school principal.
*No-holds-barred scarymommy.com reveals the roots of this program borne of the Columbine School incident in April 1999 - almost 20 years ago - in this article: ALICE: This Training Program Could Save Your Child’s Life During An Active Shooter Situation.
