Safe Kids Campbell County,
Safe Kids Wyoming and its network of Coalitions and Chapters are members 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.
Accidental injury is the number one cause of death among children ages
14 and under in the United States. Also, each year one out of every four
children needs medical attention for an accidental injury.
There is no one device or solution that will effectively prevent all types
of accidental childhood injuries. Instead, Safe Kids coalitions combine
several factors to create programs that reduce injuries:
- Educating adults and children
- Creating safe environments
- Conducting research
- Advocating for effective laws
Safe Kids Campbell County provides our community with
free car seat checks by appointment, safety
seat events, bike rodeos and much more to help educate our children. Replacement car
seats are available for a $30 contribution.
