Child Safety

The most common preventable ways babies and young children die are from drowning, preventable crib death, and being left with caretakers that have anger management issues and are not suited to caring for a child.  In the past three years in Polk County, we have had 36 children die due to unsafe sleep (17) or drowning (18).  Each year, these deaths account for more than 50% of all childhood deaths, both preventable and non-preventable.  This is very eye opening.

DCF has a provided a great brochure for preventing the three most common causes of preventable childhood death:  water safety, safe sleep, and controlling emotions/anger in caretakers.  Click here for the brochure in English or here for the brochure in Spanish.  Click here for a brochure on summer safety.
