The Ross County Kids Injury Prevention Coalition (KIP-C) was established in 2011 when the Safe Play Areas for Ross County Kids (SPARK) Project, funded by the Central Benefits Health Care Foundation, identified a need for an ongoing collaborative commitment within Ross County to prevent injuries. Membership is open to agencies, organizations, and individuals who share our interest.

Meeting announcements, agendas, and minutes will be posted regularly, and all are invited to attend. Additionally, partners are welcome to submit community event information, articles on health and safety topics, or other relevant materials to include on this webpage.


The mission of KIP-C is to prevent injuries, both intentional and unintentional, to children of all ages in Ross County. With intra-agency collaboration, the coalition implements multi-disciplinary, multi-media strategies to prevent injuries and educates families to reduce the impact of injury events.
