Trauma Injury Prevention and Community Outreach
The majority of injuries in adults and children can be prevented. Simple precautions can be taken to avoid injury to you and others. Seat belts, for example, are an easy way to prevent serious injury to yourself and your passengers.
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 and falls. Opening your eyes and ears to the world around you, educating yourself on preventative measures, and following the law are the first steps in preventing traumas and can save your life or the life of a loved one.
Trauma Prevention Program
Our Level One Trauma Center is committed to providing education on trauma prevention to our community. The trauma prevention program focuses on community interventions and education through our exceptional relationships with EMS, law enforcement and community prevention partners such as MADD, county traffic safety teams, SafeKids, and the Red (EMS), White (healthcare providers) and Blue (law enforcement) team.
