Safe Kids Sarpy/Cass is dedicated to preventing unintentional injury to our community’s children.
Around the world, one million children lose their lives as a result of a preventable injury. And millions of children are injured in ways that can affect them for a lifetime. When a child dies, or is seriously injured, the lives of families and entire communities are changed forever. But these injuries don’t have to happen. The important thing to remember about preventable injuries is that they’re preventable. They often occur in predictable ways and can be completely avoided with the right education, awareness and planning.
Safe Kids Sarpy/Cass provides adult education classes in home safety and child passenger safety. We also provide a variety of injury prevention education for ages 3-19. Our public health educators are available to present safety information upon request. Please contact our office for more information.
Our goal is to assist the residents of Sarpy and Cass counties in understanding and implementing strategies to prevent unintentional childhood injury. Through the Safe Kids Sarpy/Cass Coalition, community partners and local organizations join us in that goal. If you are interested in supporting our coalition, please send your name and contact information to [email protected].
