There’s something very dangerous in your home. 
 
It could be hiding in a closet.… or waiting in the basement.
 
It’s not sharp, or toxic, or flammable…yet it helps send more people to the trauma center than any other household item.

Using a ladder might seem easy.  Misusing one is even easier.  Ask any of the 150 thousand people who fell off their ladders into the trauma center last year alone.  Don’t let a do-it-yourself project…do yourself in.
