The Children's Safety Center provides education and resources to families to keep kids and teens of all ages safe from injury.
Bikes and helmets
Wearing a helmet is the best way to reduce head injuries and death from bicycle crashes and other wheeled sports.
More than 600 child pedestrian deaths occur each year. Teach kids and teens of all ages to use crosswalks, read traffic signals and stay distraction free while on the road.
Seasonal and holiday safety
Wisconsin is known for its beautiful seasons and ways to enjoy them outside throughout the year. From picnics and camping in summer to sledding and playing outside in winter and celebrating holidays, learn about the hazards and find ways to enjoy seasonal activities safely.
Safe at home
Many injuries occur in the home. Fires, poisons, drowning are leading causes of injury and death in kids. With proper childproofing, supervision and education, many of these injuries are preventable.
Play and sport safety
Playground falls are the leading cause of injury for children 5 to 9 years. One in three children who plays a team sport is injured seriously enough to miss practice or games. Most organized sports-related injuries occur during practice rather than in games.
Children’s Wisconsin is committed to keeping kids safe. Children’s is the lead agency for the statewide Safe Kids coalition and the local coalition in Southeast Wisconsin. These community coalitions show the commitment to preventing childhood injuries across the state of Wisconsin.
