Did you know? Preventable injuries are the leading cause of death and disability for children under the age of 19 in the United States.
Our ServicesChildren’s National has partnered with Safe Kids DC to prevent unintentional injuries in the Washington, D.C., region by focusing on these five priority areas.
Bike and Pedestrian Safety
Car Seat Safety
We understand that families have many questions about car seat safety and the precautions they can take to protect their child. We have these online resources that can help answer your questions and connect you with the information you need.
Safe Kids DC
Safe Kids DC is committed to helping children and families prevent injury and injury-related death in children and youth through educational programs and outreach activities.
The Safety Center provides injury prevention education and accessible safety equipment to children and their families throughout the D.C. region, as well as all families that visit Children’s National Hospital.
Safe Kids Worldwide
Safe Kids Worldwide works to reduce childhood injuries from motor vehicles, sports, drowning, falls, burns and poisoning.
Our efforts are largely volunteer supported. We are always looking for parents, child health advocates and local organizations to raise awareness about childhood injury prevention and broaden our reach. We welcome new ideas and members. Join us in helping children in the District grow up stronger by collaborating on injury prevention activities, networking with other child safety advocates and volunteering at community events. In lieu of participation, monetary donations are also welcome to help sustain our coalition so we can continue supporting injury prevention in the District of Columbia.
