Accidental injury is the number one killer of children under the age of 14.
Each year more than 6.5 million young people are injured severely enough to land in a hospital emergency room, many with life-altering consequences. Yet, an astounding 90% of these could have been avoided through education and prevention measures like those offered through the Center for Childhood Safety (CCS).
Our mission is to create a culture of childhood safety in Northeast Wisconsin by providing education and resources to children and adults.
For 28 years, the Center for Childhood Safety has been a "vaccine" against accidental childhood injury. CCS's mission is to be the leading source of safety education and programming in Northeast Wisconsin, dedicated to preventing and eliminating childhood injury.
"If a disease were killing our children at the rate of unintentional injury, the public would be outraged and demand this killer be stopped."
