By Anna Edwards Apr 20, 2016
Did you know that preventable injuries such as car crashes, drowning, fires and bike accidents are the No. 1 killer of kids in this country?
Every year, 9,000 kids in the United States are lost to preventable injuries.
But we can change this. There are simple things every parent can do to protect their kids. This problem has a solution, and Safe Kids of Central Wyoming works every day to prevent these tragedies from happening.
On May 7, Safe Kids of Central Wyoming is hosting our annual Safe Kids Day event. This day is designed to provide kids, families and the community with the information, equipment and resources they need to avoid preventable injures.
This is a family friendly event with fun interactive booths and activities. Bike and multi-use helmets will be distributed at Safe Kids Day, along with tips on many topics including gun safety, car and booster seats, pedestrian safety and fire safety.
