Safe Kids Chippewa Valley

Who

Safe Kids Chippewa Valley is committed to informing parents and children about injury prevention. Our focus is newborns to 14-year-olds. 

We are affiliated with Safe Kids Worldwide, the first and only international nonprofit organization dedicated solely to preventing unintentional childhood injury. Safe Kids Worldwide has more than 450 coalitions in 16 countries.

What

We offer individual and community education, and we collaborate with other agencies and advocacy groups to fulfill this mission.

Car seat safety

We conduct monthly car seat safety checks throughout our service area. Parents can have their child’s car seat inspected by a certified technician, and car seats will be checked for proper size and installation, as well as any possible recalls. Parents can also have their older child’s seat belt checked for correct fit. 

Presentations: water, bike and pedestrian safety

We provide special presentations to schools and community groups on topics such as water, bike and pedestrian safety.

Safety Town

We also coordinate Safety Town, a comprehensive educational program introducing safety awareness and preventive procedures to children 4 to 6 years old.
