Injuries at home and on the road are not accidents - they often can be prevented.
For young children, unintentional injury is the leading cause of death. Each year between 20-25% of all children sustain an injury severe enough to require medical attention, missed school or bed rest.
For seniors, tripping and falling is a major health risk.
South Snohomish County Fire & Rescue has a number of programs to prevent common causes of injury.
