June Helps Americans Remember the Importance of Home Safety

June concluded with a highly successful Home Safety Month (HSM), with HSC significantly increasing its visibility among a number of key audiences including Members of Congress, like-minded organizations and the general public.

Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson’s office contacted HSC to invite a representative to be the featured guest on the Congresswoman’s weekly cable TV show on Tuesday, June 9th.

Throughout June, the Congresswoman’s office focused on safety topics and interviewing guests with tips that will help constituents learn what they can do to prevent injuries. The interview was set up as a one-on-one conversation between the Congresswoman and Meri-K Appy. The show airs in Dallas and is featured on her You Tube channel. The Congresswoman’s office heard about HSM from our informational email blast to all press secretaries on Capitol Hill.
