Unintentional injuries are the #1 killer of children ages 1-19 in the United States. Every hour, a child dies from an injury that was entirely preventable. These injuries cost society more than $200 billion each year. Ninety percent of these injuries could be prevented if families took the simple steps necessary to protect their children. We can change this. By working at the local and national levels we can educate, raise awareness and motivate families in our communities to promote childhood injury prevention and to join us in keeping kids safe.
