Safe Kids Greater Augusta is experiencing some growing pains. Pardon us while we take some time to readjust the size of our programs to better fit the needs of our community. Thank you!
Creating a Safer Environment for Children
Accidental injury is the #1 cause of death for American children under the age of 14, taking more lives every year than disease, violence and suicide combined.
Safe Kids Greater Augusta, a childhood accident prevention program and affiliate of Safe Kids Worldwide, works to protect local children and has a real impact
on our community. Established in 2002 and led by Children’s Hospital of Georgia, the nonprofit community coalition
serves Richmond and Columbia counties and reaches out to other communities when possible. We also promote legislation to protect children, provide safety equipment to members of the community at little or no costs and offer a variety of programs
to reduce childhood death and injury. Program topics include:
In addition, we cover the following safety topics:
- Bike helmets
- Water safety
- Pedestrian safety
- Poison prevention
- Accidental shootings
- Fire prevention
- Fall prevention
- Sleep safety
