What does Safe Kids Carroll County do?
Serious injuries and fatalities due to unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death to children ages 0 to 14 years. Safe Kids Carroll County works to prevent such unintentional injuries through community education. The group meets bimonthly at the Carroll County Health Department to plan and implement educational programs that address a variety of safety issues, including water safety, child passenger safety, pedestrian safety, falls, bike safety, poison prevention, sports safety, fire safety, home safety, playground safety and toy safety. The Coalition provides informational brochures and literature to community activities such as health fairs and local events. The Coalition can give educational presentations upon request.
