Injury Prevention

Injury Prevention Program

The goal of the Injury Prevention Program is to reduce unintentional injuries throughout the region. The success of the Injury Prevention program truly depends on the partnerships formed to share resources and extend our reach.

We work to provide safety education and resources  in the areas of transportation (bike helmet safety, pedestrian safety,  ATV safety, etc.) and home environmental safety (promote the use of smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors, gun locks, Elder Fall Prevention, etc.).

Not only does our program provide safety products at cost and share educational resource, we work with our program partners such as local governments, law enforcement, schools, parents and community members to see that safety practices and laws are followed.
