Home and Safety

In the US, more than 12,000 children, ages 0 to 19 years, die from unintentional injuries, and more than 9.2 million are treated in ERs for nonfatal injuries. The most common unintentional injuries are related to drowning, falls, fires or burns, poisoning, suffocation, and transportation. The good news is that these injuries can be prevented.

Our injury prevention program is here to help you understand the dangers children and youth face and to give you the tools to help prevent injuries.
