Safe Kids Spartanburg
A Community Effort to Keep Our Kids Safe
The children’s experts with Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System work hard to care for children who are ill or injured. We also work hard to make sure the kids in our communities remain safe. We have joined with local agencies to create Safe Kids Spartanburg, a nonprofit organization. Our focus is to prevent injuries that are the leading cause of death in children 14 and younger.
Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System works with local firefighters, law enforcement officers, health educators, parents and other community members to eliminate the top six preventable causes of death of children:
- Motor vehicle crashes, including those that involve people riding bicycles and walking
- Fire and burns
- Poisoning and choking
To help educate the public about injury prevention, Safe Kids Spartanburg provides safety equipment and information and hosts events such as bike-safety “rodeos,” car seat checks, CPR classes and smoke alarm campaigns.
