For children ages 14 and under, the number-one health risk isn't drugs or disease: it's injuries.
Every time a child is injured or killed by an unintentional injury, everyone suffers - the child, his or her family, classmates and friends, and the entire community. Sadly, the vast majority of these injuries are not random "accidents" - they are predictable and preventable. With education, motivation, and the support of caring adults, NFPA believes that children can learn to be much safer.
What is Risk Watch?
is the first comprehensive injury prevention program available for use in schools. Developed by NFPA and in collaboration with a panel of respected safety and injury prevention experts, Risk Watch
gives children and their families the skills and knowledge they need to create safer homes and communities.
For those interested in distributing the program, NFPA is prepared to sign a licensing agreement that will allow you to update the program and add any additional information to customize the curriculum (NFPA review and approval required). The agreement would also allow you to print and distribute Risk Watch materials within your state. If you are interested in a licensing agreement, please contact the NFPA public education division.
