DERBY - Griffin Hospital, 130 Division St., Derby, and Safe Kids Greater Naugatuck Valley invite the community to come to the hospital Mon., April 10 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. for National Safe Kids Day.
“Safe Kids Day is a day to celebrate kids and take action to keep kids safe,” said Cathi Kellett, Safe Kids Greater Naugatuck Valley Coalition Coordinator.
Many people are surprised to learn that injuries from car crashes, fires, drownings, poisonings, and falls are the top health threats to children in the United States, Kellett said. Throughout the world, an estimated 1 million children die of injuries each year, and nearly all of these tragedies are preventable.
Visitors to the Safe Kids Day table will learn about the many free Safe Kids programs offered in their community to help keep children safe.
