Western Massachusetts Safe Kids Coalition
Protect Kids from Injuries
We’ll help you protect your child with Safe Kids of Western Massachusetts, based at Baystate Children’s Hospital. As part of our Family Support Services, we educate children up to age 14 and their parents to help prevent them from injury.
We provide families and caregivers in our community with free resources to reduce the incidence of childhood injuries. We offer education for parents and children about water safety, bicycle safety, common dangers in the home, car safety, and more.
Not sure if you’re using the right car seat for your child – or using it the right way? We’ll take a look and let you know. Free car seat inspections are a public service provided thanks to the Safe Kids of Western Massachusetts.
The Kohl’s Cares® Safety Crew also partners with the Safe Kids of Western Massachusetts and Baystate Children’s Hospital to provide mobile car seat checks, helmet safety for bicycling and skiing, and child pedestrian safety.
