Accidental injury is the No. 1 cause of death among children ages 14 and under in the United States. Each year, one out of every four children needs medical attention for an accidental injury.
Safe Kids Fayette County is one of more than 650 grassroots coalitions in all 50 states and 17 countries, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico that bring together health and safety experts, educators, corporations, foundations, governments and volunteers to educate and protect families.
Safe Kids Fayette County is a member of Safe Kids Worldwide, a global network of organizations dedicated to preventing accidental injury. We know our efforts are needed because as many as 90 percent of accidental injuries can be prevented.
As families prepare to enter the hustle and bustle of back to school, please keep safety in mind. Put those devices down. Keep your head up and be aware of those around you while walking or driving in a car.
