The Children's Wisconsin Safety Center provides education and resources to families to keep kids and teens of all ages safe from injury.
Car and booster seats
Children's Wisconsin has a comprehensive car seat program and is a state leader in child passenger safety.
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 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. Learn about the hazards and find ways to enjoy seasonal activities and holidays safely.
Teens and teen driving
Resources to help parents guide teens as they become increasingly independent at home and behind the wheel.
Safe at home
Many types of injuries to kids take place in the home. With proper education, childproofing and supervision, these injuries are preventable.
Play and sport safety
Playground falls are the leading cause of injury for children ages 5 to 9. 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 the lead agency for the statewide Safe Kids coalition and the local Southeast Wisconsin coalition. These community coalitions work to prevent childhood injuries across the state of Wisconsin.
