Safe Kids

The Children’s Hospital at Monmouth Medical Center leads Monmouth County’s first and only chapter of the Safe Kids Campaign — an international initiative to prevent injuries and save young lives.

The county-based chapter is among more than 500 grassroots partnerships worldwide associated with Safe Kids, the first non profit organization dedicated solely to the prevention of unintentional childhood injury or accidents — the No. 1 killer of children age 14 and under.

In addition, the Safe Kids Monmouth County Chapter also partners with the Long Branch Police Department, Long Branch Public School System, Long Branch Department of Recreation and the Coastal Monmouth Alliance for the Prevention of Substance Abuse. Through Monmouth’s Community Health Education Department, The Children’s Hospital regularly sponsors activities to educate parents, caregivers and children about safety and how simple behavior modifications can prevent needless tragedies.
