Resources on Injury Prevention and First Aid

Check out this great info-graphic on childhood injury prevention from the CDC. To see more: www.cdc.gov/safechild/images/CDC-ChildhoodInjury.pdf

There are lots of great resources for safety information, but my favorite online collection is at: www.seattlechildrens.org/safety-wellness

Their safety and injury prevention section includes a wide range of topics… In the list below, I’ve linked to a few of my favorite articles on their site, but if you go there directly, you’ll find lots more!

Bike Safety, Car Seats, Choosing Safe Baby Products, Driver Education, Emergency Preparedness, Environmental Health, Falls (what to do in case of one), Fire Safety, Gun Safety, Helmets, Home Safety checklists, Injury Prevention, Pedestrian Safety, Playground Safety, Summer Safety tips, Sports Safety (skating, skiing,etc.), Sun Exposure, Toy Safety, Travel & vehicle safety, and water safety.

Their first aid section includes info on how to treat allergic reactions, bites (animal and bug), burns, CPR, choking, lacerations (cuts), poisoning, stings, strains and sprains, and broken bones.

Check out the prevention tips now and take steps to prevent injury.
