Home is a place to relax, play, and enjoy spending time with family. But, unfortunately, accidents happen in homes every day.  There will always be minor scrapes and bruises as your kids grow and others of all ages discover new things!   The problem is the more serious injuries are often completely preventable.  Each year in the United States more than 2,800 kids are treated in emergency rooms after swallowing button batteries.  Unintentional falls, in general, resulted in nearly 3 million injuries requiring treatment in an emergency room in 2012. 

In this presentation, you’ll learn about the things you can do to help ensure that your family gets the freedom that comes from being active, healthy, and safe, at your home and when you are away from home.  Together we can “Make Safe Happen!"

Facilitated by: Tony Brown, JMU Safety Coordinator, Kevin Lanoue, Crime Analyst and Emergency Management Specialist, Erin Stehle, Fire Prevention Education Specialist, Harrisonburg Fire Department, and Lt. Wanda Willis, Public Information Officer, Harrisonburg Fire Department
