Safe Kids Utah strives to make Utah a safer place for children.
Most people are surprised to learn that preventable injuries - things like car crashes, drownings, fires, and falls - are the leading cause of death to kids.
We can change this.
Safe Kids Day presented by Nationwide is a day to celebrate kids, prevent injuries, and save lives. It will be held across the country on April 26, 2015. Find a local event near you and help keep kids safe!
Safe Kids Utah was organized in 1995 to address the issue of childhood injuries and to look for better ways to keep kids safe. Safe Kids Utah is a 501(c)3 organization and is housed within the Utah Department of Health.
Together with community partners across the state, Safe Kids Utah strives to make Utah a safer place for children and preventing unintentional injuries and deaths by raising community awareness, influencing policies, promoting safety, and establishing private/public partnerships.
