Injury Prevention Safety Tips

The Trauma Injury Prevention Program strives to reduce unintentional injuries among children and promote safe behaviors in the community. Much of this is done through providing education and resources to families in the hospital and community. 


As children grow, parents face new challenges, which is why we provide a wide range of safety tips for you to access. We challenge you to share these safety tips with family and friends.
