"If you think safety rails are for babies, imagine having your parents feed you, bath you, and change your diapers at 20 years old."

As colleges enrollments increase, space becomes precious and bed height increases to accommodate storage. Unfortunately, many students don’t have any idea of the risk involved in sleeping in a bunk or loft bed with no safety rail to protect them. About 71,000 kids are injured each year, badly enough to send them to the ER.

Even worse, some colleges and universities don’t even offer rails, leaving students vulnerable to unnecessary injury, even death.

Please don’t take that chance. Contact your Housing Department and ask them for a safety rail. Once you read Clark Jacobs’ story, we hope you will do the smart thing and protect yourself. Join the movement for a safer living space on YOUR campus!
