Safe Kids New London County
A program to prevent unintentional injuries to children under 14
Injuries are the leading killer of our children. Traffic injuries, burns, drowning, falls, choking, unintentional shootings and poisonings cause more children's deaths each year than diseases, kidnapping and drugs combined; more than 6,700 a year.
New Child Passenger Safety Technicians
Esther Pendola, Coordinator, Safe Kids New London County
We call them accidents, but they're not, because they can be predicted - and prevented. It doesn't cost a lot or take much time, either. And that's where we come in. We're Safe Kids, and our mission is to reduce preventable injuries to children.
Some activities include:
- Interactive safety programs for children
- Workshops/programs for caregivers
- Professional trainings
- Outreach at community events for all ages!
