Preschool Injury Prevention Program

Unintentional injury is the leading cause of death for children three to five years old.  Each year between 20-25% of all children sustain an injury sufficiently severe enough to require medical attention, missed school and/or bed rest.

The Smart Kids! Safe Kids! Injury Prevention Program was developed by Seattle Fire Department and King County Emergency Medical Services to target the main injury categories relevant to three to five year old children.
