When a child dies or is seriously injured the lives of families and entire communities are changed forever. Yet these tragedies don’t have to happen. The important thing to remember about unintentional injury is that 9 times out of 10, accidents are preventable. Often occurring in predictable ways, injury and deaths can be completely avoided with injury prevention education, awareness advocacy, and proper equipment usage.
We believe that losing one child is one too many! That’s why we’re calling on communities to come together, to raise awareness and most importantly, become involved. Our tenet is that every child should have a chance to grow up healthy and safe from accidental injury.
