Safe Kids Tarrant CountySafe Kids Tarrant County (SKTC) is a local coalition led by Cook Children's Community Health Outreach department and is a nationally recognized community partnership. SKTC is dedicated to preventing unintentional childhood injuries which is the number one killer of children ages 14 and under.
Child car safetyThe combination of children and cars can result in many dangerous situations. Buckling up the right way on every ride is the single most important thing a family can do to stay safe in the car. It is also important to be aware of other important hazards cars can pose to kids. Preventing backover and frontover incidents, heat stroke and trunk entrapment are also important to keeping your kids safe in and around vehicles.
Drowning preventionDrowning is the third leading cause of unintentional death among children ages 14 and under. Learn steps you can take to prevent drownings or near drownings in your pool, the lake or other areas where there is water.
Holiday safetyThe holidays are an exciting time of year for kids, filled with fun, wonder, and lots presents. Here are some tips to help ensure that your most precious little gifts have a safe, healthy, and happy holiday season.
Oral health preventionIn addition to cars, water and potential poisons, there are many other things in and around the house that can be a danger to children.
Poison preventionPoisons are in every household. Learn how you can prevent accidental poisonings from household medications and other products such as cosmetics, cleaning substances, plants, toys, pesticides, art supplies and alcohol.
TV and furniture tip-oversTop-heavy furniture, TVs and appliances can be unsteady, and if pulled or climbed on, they can tip over and seriously injure young children. These injuries can be prevented by taking a few simple precautions. Much like childproofing with a toddler gate or electrical socket cover, TV mounts and furniture straps are important steps to keeping your family safe.
