In 1992, Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego signed on as the lead agency for a local coalition of Safe Kids Worldwide to form Safe Kids San Diego. This organization is a grassroots coalition of parent champions, private citizens and organizations committed to unintentional injury.
The group convenes bi-monthly, on the third Thursday, to discuss injury trends, share resources, announce events, provide networking opportunities and plan community-based educational programs. A special guest speaker also presents on a topic of interest, and we spotlight a local community resource. Task forces have been formed to address the most prevalent injury areas, which include child passenger safety, drowning prevention, home safety, sports & head injury prevention and pedestrian safety.
Report to the Community
Safe Kids San Diego and the Health and Human Services Agency of San Diego County collaborate to produce a “Report to The Community.” The report provides information on trends in unintentional death and injury in the county and compares this data to previous reports. See our most recent report.
