Safe Kids, the first national non-profit organization dedicated solely to the prevention of unintentional childhood injury, was launched in 1988 to address what was then a little recognized problem: More children under age 14 were dying from what people call “accidents” (motor vehicle crashes, fires and other injuries) than from any other cause.
Save Kids Washoe County believes that children should grow up safe, healthy and injury free. Our programs focus on injury prevention for children aged 0-14. Accidental injury is the number one cause of death among children ages 14 and under in the United States, and annually, one out of every four children needs medical attention for accidental injury. Safe Kids creates programs that reduce injuries through educating adults and children, creating safe environments, conducting research and advocating for effective laws.
