Safe Kids Coalition
The Safe Kids Coalition of the La Crosse Coulee Region is made up of community members and agencies working to prevent unintentional childhood injuries in kids in La Crosse and surrounding communities.
Prevention strategies include reducing:

- Fire and burns
Goals for the organization include:
- Enhance public education and awareness about childhood injury prevention by providing injury prevention materials and programs while increasing awareness.
- Develop and initiate strategies to develop programs based on injury data and research.
- Advocate for injury prevention legislation and regulations, and/or stronger enforcement of existing laws.
