Home Safety Task Force

Each year, more than 3.4 million kids ages 14 and under get hurt at home—and more than 2,500 children die from unintentional injuries in the home.  Fire, suffocation, drowning, choking, firearm, and poisoning are among the top leading causes of unintentional home injury death for this age group.

Home Safety Task Force Activities

  • In Memory of Baby Lane . . . Small parts testers and educational materials are provided to pediatrician offices, childcare centers, and social service agencies to raise awareness about potential choking hazards for young children.
  • A public health educator can provide information on fall and choking prevention, poison safety and prevention, and electrical safety and prevention.
