Imagine a world where the children in our community are safe from accidental injuries.
Unintentional injuries are the number one cause of death to Americans 1-44 years old. Our mission as Safe Kids Larimer County is to prevent accidental injuries to children 0-19 years of age. We partner with other organizations such as fire, EMS, law enforcement, local non-profits and more to provide safety resources and education to families and children in our community.
We have gathered the data and identified the following injury areas as priorities Safe Kids Larimer County and partners focus on:
Child Passenger Safety
Bicycle Safety/Pedestrian Safety
Teen Driving Safety
Poison Prevention/Medication Safety
Car seat use reduces the risk of death by 71% for infants, 54% for children ages 1-4 and 45% for booster aged children. Yet, of the children ages 12 years and younger who died in a crash in 2013, 38% were not buckled up. (CDC)
This is why we decided to prioritize child passenger safety. Safe Kids uses a proven education and distribution program which improves child passenger safety by providing car seats and education about proper car seat use to parents in northern Colorado.
