Code: JR-8200.6500-350

Programs that are designed to raise awareness of the measures people can take to prevent accidents and provide for the safety of young children. The programs deal broadly with a wide range of infant and child safety issues rather than focusing on specific areas of risk. Topics may include car seat safety and installation, sleep safety, stroller/carrier safety, high chair safety, health concerns (e.g., SIDS, shaken baby syndrome, lead poisoning, sun exposure and the risks associated with second hand smoke), choking and fall prevention, pet safety, pool and general water safety and baby-proofing the home.
