Safe Kids Woodbury County

Who are we
Safe Kids Woodbury County is part of a global network of organizations whose mission is to prevent accidental childhood injury, a leading killer of children 14 and under. More than 450 coalitions in 16 countries bring together health and safety experts, educators, corporation, foundations, governments and volunteers to educate and protect families.

What we do
Locally, Safe Kids focuses on bicycle safety, car seat safety, fire safety, water safety, poison prevention and other injury prevention programs.

There is no one device or solution that prevents all types of accidental childhood injuries.
Instead, Safe Kids combines several factors to create programs that reduce injuries:

  • Educating adults and children
  • Creating safe environments
  • Conducting research
  • Advocating for effective laws
