Injury Prevention & Public Education

The most important person to protect your life and property is not the firefighter or the police officer or the teacher or the coach, it is you. Through advance planning and preparation, you and your family can become better prepared for emergencies of all kinds.


When people talk of mishaps, they usually refer to it as an accident. But was it really? An accident is an undesirable or unfortunate happening that occurs unintentionally and usually results in harm, injury, damage, or loss. But, what could you and your family have done to prevent or minimize those "accidents"?
