Mission Statement

Our mission is to reduce and eliminate intentional and unintentional deaths and injuries in Navajo County. We do this through the following strategies:     

  • Partner with certified local community partners to offer car seat educational courses, car seat checks and provide car seats to those who qualify for free. 
  • Partner with home visitation programs, WIC and other community partners to identify children who don’t have safe sleep environments and provide them a portable crib and education on safe sleep to reduce the amount of SIDS & SUID cases.      
  • Offer free educational courses on home safety, poison prevention, fire safety and safe sleep.     
  • Offer the Battle of the Belts Program that addresses adolescent motor vehicle safety and seat belt usage rates. This is done through peer led groups in the local high schools.
