Preventing Injury & Vehicle Safety

Preventing Injury 

 

Arkansas and Tennessee have some of the highest rates of child and adolescent injury in the nation. Arkansas Children’s Hospital has made reducing the rate of childhood injury a high priority. Download the Home Safety Checklist from www.archildrens.org/ documents/ipc-homesafety.pdf or visit the Tennessee Department of Health at health.state.tn.us/healthyhomes/injury.shtml, and begin making your home safer as soon as possible.

Vehicle Safety

Vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death in Arkansas and Tennessee for children and youth ages 1–19. Many of these deaths and injuries can be prevented. The Injury Prevention Center at Arkansas Children’s Hospital offers programs to educate parents on the importance of vehicle safety.
