Safe Kids Orange County Florida is a local coalition of Safe Kids USA, the nationwide network of organizations working to prevent unintentional childhood injury, the leading cause of death and disability for children ages 1 to 14.
We educate families, provide safety devices to families in need and advocate for better laws to help keep children safe, healthy and out of the emergency room.
More than 600 coalitions and chapters in all 50 states bring together health and safety experts, educators, corporations, foundations, governments and volunteers to educate and protect families.
We are housed at the Children’s Safety Village of Central Florida, Inc. - our lead organization. While we cover a wide range of topics, we focus primarily on three safety issues through our programs:
Safe Kids Buckle Up - Child Passenger Safety In and Around Vehicles.
Safe Kids Ready to Roll - Wheeled Sports Safety, including bicycle and helmet safety.
Safe Kids Walk This Way - Pedestrian Safety program, participating in
International Walk to School Day and Halloween Pedestrian Safety Awareness.
