Safe Kids Information

Safe Kids and Parents Information 

Safe Kids Washington is a network of 13 local community coalitions serving counties across the state to prevent Concussions, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and related injuries, to include the number one killer and injury in children – unintentional injury. 

Our mission along with the WA Department of Health (DOH) is to create safe and injury free communities in Washington State, focusing on children aged 0-19 years old. Safe Kids Coalitions with local communities include: 

Community events for all ages 

Safety equipment distribution and use support (helmets, booster seats, life jackets, and more) 

Preventive health and safety information  

Local injury and prevention coordinators 

Safe Kids Washington partners with the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) through the Washington Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Strategic Partnership Advisory Council and the University of Oregon Center for Brain Injury Research and Training (CBIRT). This collaboration has produced various forms of educational content for communities on injury prevention, TBI, and trauma-informed practices.
