The Injury and Violence Prevention Program is the lead agency
for the Washington State Safe Kids Coalition.
The state coalition works with local coalitions to prevent
the number one killer of children – unintentional injury.
The coalitions work on reducing unintentional injuries in children from
birth to 14 years of age by educating adults and children, providing
safety devices to families in need, conducting research and data collection,
and passing and strengthening laws to empower families and
communities to protect children.
