Safety for Kids

According to the CDC, an average of 20 children die every day from a preventable injury – which is more than those that die from all diseases combined.  Educating yourself on hazards and methods to remove or control those hazards is an important step in keeping your child's world as safe as possible.

Educating yourself, however, is only the first step in safeguarding your children.  The next step is to educate your children to recognize the hazards and let them know what they can do to avoid or minimize injury from those hazards.

The following websites provides materials that will help you to educate your children.  Materials include coloring books, tips, videos, and games.
