UNC Trauma is the lead agency for Safe Kids Chatham County and Safe Kids Orange County. Both groups are official coalitions of Safe Kids Worldwide, an international nonprofit whose mission is to reduce preventable childhood injury. We also participate in Safe Kids North Carolina under the NC Department of Insurance.
Our coalitions meet on a monthly basis to coordinate childhood injury prevention efforts amongst our communities’ public service and public safety agencies. We focus on home safety, motor vehicle safety and fire safety.
