Welcome to Safe Kids Cobb County

The Problem: Accidental childhood injury

Accidental injury is the number one cause of death among children ages 14 and under in the United States.  Also, each year one out of every four children needs medical attention for an accidental injury.

The Solution: Safe Kids

Safe Kids Cobb County is one of more than 300 grassroots coalitions in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico that bring together health and safety experts, educators, corporations, foundations, governments and volunteers to educate and protect families.  Safe Kids Cobb County is a member of Safe Kids Worldwide, a global network of organizations dedicated to preventing accidental injury.   We know our efforts are needed because as many as 90 percent of accidental injuries can be prevented.
