Safety Is in Season

Each year, more than two thousand kids die from injuries that could have been prevented. Thousands more have serious injuries that land them in hospitals. The most common risks are drowning, bike accidents and auto crashes.

The good news: It's easy to dramatically reduce your family's risks. With a few helpful tips, you can focus on enjoying your safe summer fun.
