Most unintentional injuries and deaths, such as those that result from not using a seat belt or drinking and driving, are preventable. The goal of our program is to identify and as much as possible eliminate the causes of preventable injury: unsafe behaviors, conditions and environments.
This month's safety tip
Summer means hot days and cool fun. Remember, it's the law that children 13 and under wear a life jacket in all Sacramento county waterways. Be sure your kids wear a life jacket when swimming and keep them safely in sight.
