Trauma Is Preventable
The majority of injuries in adults and children can be prevented. Simple precautions can be taken to avoid injury to yourself and others. Seat belts, for example, are an easy way to prevent serious injury to yourself and your passengers. Placing children in proper safety restraints (car seats, booster seats, etc.) and in the back seat is also an easy way to prevent injury to your most precious fmaily members - not to mention, it's the law.
We urge you to review safety tips when it comes to pedestrians, defensive driving, water safety, lightning, alcohol, gun safety, boating, safety, poison control and protection, and preventing burns. Opening your eyes and ears to the world around you, using common sense, and following the law are the first steps preventing traumas and can save your life or the life of a loved one.
