Safe Kids Tulsa Area is dedicated to preventing injuries in children, the number one killer of kids in the United States. When it comes to the daily activities and lives of kids, parents and caregivers must always “think safe.” Around the world, a child dies from an unintentional injury every 30 seconds. And millions of children are injured in ways that can affect them for a lifetime.
When a child dies or is seriously injured, the lives of families and entire communities are changed forever. But these tragedies don’t have to happen. The important thing to remember about preventable injuries is that they are preventable. They often occur in predictable ways and can be completely avoided with the right education, awareness and planning.
Losing one child is one too many, and we don’t want any parent to have to endure that loss. That’s why we’re calling on everyone to come together to raise awareness and get involved to ensure that all children around the world have the chance to grow up healthy and safe, and do all the great things kids were meant to do.
