Are you a new or expectant mom looking to learn about the hidden dangers in your home that could potentially cause injure your child? The Child Death Review Team and The Safe Kids Coalition are pleased to announce that they will be hosting a Baby Safety Shower thanks to a grant from the PA Department of Health.

Every year there are thousands of emergency room visits by parents with young children due to an injury that has happened in the home. Safe Kids has the goal of educating the public on each of these hidden dangers and the many others that surround our children today. Several other topics such as car seat safety, water safety, falls prevention, hypothermia, and more will be discussed during the event.

Each participant will receive a FREE pack-n-play to promote safe sleep in the home.
