National SAFE KIDS Week

What is National SAFE KIDS Week?

National SAFE KIDS Week was created to bring awareness to accidental deaths of children. During summer months these deaths rise, as children are more at risk. 

SafeKids.org is the organization that is spreading the awareness and education of child safety. They believe that it is a global epidemic as explained in the picture below. 
A campaign was created to spread the education of things that adults can do. This campaign was called My High 5. The goal of it is for parents to do five things that will keep their kids safe.
SafeKids created checklists that parents can use to help prevent accidents, and keep their kids safer. There is one for cars, water, pedestrians, home, medication, play, and fire.
They also created safety tips for children of all ages, and for different types of risks.
