Welcome To Safe Kids Oregon!

 
May is National Wheeled Sports Safety month. Each year, more than 1.35 million children are seen in emergency departments with sports-related injuries.
 

Did You Know?

•Every two minutes, a child is treated in an emergency room for an unintentional cycle-related incident.
•More children are seen in emergency rooms for injuries related to riding toys than any other toy.
•Helmet use is the most effective way to reduce bicycle-related fatalities.
•Non-motorized scooters cause more injuries to kids than any other toy.
•If 85% of all children wore helmets every time they rode their bike for one year, an average of $109 to $142 million in lifetime medical costs would be saved.
 
Safe Kids Oregon is working on preventing Bicycle, Skateboard and other Wheeled-Sport Injuries. Parents and caregivers please help kids stay healthy, active and safe so they can keep playing the sports they love.
