Accidental injury is the number one cause of death among children ages 14 and under in the United States. Our mission is to prevent accidental injuries to children through education, research, advocacy, environmental improvements, safety device distribution and public awareness programs. Safe Kids Springfield is one of more than 400 grassroots coalitions in the United States that bring together health and safety experts, educators, corporations, foundations, governments and volunteers to educate families and communities about safety and injury prevention.
