Preventing Injuries: At home at play and on the way

Preventable injuries are the number one killer of kids in the United States. Every year, 8,000 families lose a child because of a preventable injury. When a child dies, the lives of families change forever. Safe Kids Pennsylvania is part of the Safe Kids Worldwide global network dedicated to keeping kids safe from preventable childhood injury – the number one cause of death among children ages 1 to 19.

Halloween Safety

Fall is here and for many kids that means one thing: Halloween! Americans spend nearly $8 billion annually on Halloween costumes, candy and decorations with an estimated 36 million children, ages 5-13, going trick-or-treating. Children are twice more likely to be hit by a car and killed on Halloween than on any other day of the year.
