Safe Kids Central Ohio is a coalition of public and private organizations working together to prevent injuries to children. Unintentional injuries are the number one killer of children ages 2 to 14. Local statistics have identified the need to focus on: child passenger safety, pedestrian safety, bicycle safety and fire/burn safety. In 1987, the National Safe Kids Coalition launched a nationwide injury prevention program in pilot communities throughout the country. Central Ohio, under the leadership of Columbus Public Health, was chosen to be a part of this initial campaign. Columbus Public Health remains the lead agency, providing leadership and coordination of activities for Safe Kids Central Ohio. All coalition members have a passion to protect children and help them grow up safe and healthy.

Tickets to a ‘Meet and Greet Hour’ with Ms. Morse are also available. To purchase tickets for either event or to obtain additional information, visit safekidscentralohio.org.
