Good Reasons for Giving!
The Council’s many safety programs are designed to keep you and your family safe at home, safe at work, safe at play and safe on the roads.
Safety programs from the Council include F1RST, fall prevention for older adults, Tumbling Tim, fall prevention for children, Street Smarts, parent education of teen drivers, Seeking Safety Champions – encouraging others to provide safety programs, Community Safety and Wellness Festival, Distracted Driving Prevention, Safety Belt usage, Getting to School Safely, Child Passenger Safety, and Cyclefest – bicycle safety, and strengthening Greater Omaha’s ‘World Health Organization Safe Community’. Injuries are the 5th greatest cause of fatality for all ages.
We continue to re-invent our messages to convince people of the importance of safety.
With good injury prevention mechanisms in place, accidents won’t happen.
Accidents are unplanned events; they don’t just happen … something precipitates an accident whether it is a failure of people, equipment, materials or the environment to react as expected. All accidents have consequences.
How do we support our work?
