Safety & Injury Prevention Center
We understand that as a parent, you want to protect your child as much as possible. At CHOC, we are dedicated to injury prevention, because we believe injuries shouldn’t put childhood on pause. More children are affected by injuries than all other childhood illnesses and diseases combined.
CHOC’s trauma center treats more than 10,000 children with injuries every year. Most of these injuries are predictable and preventable. CHOC’s community education department offers a variety of classes and programs designed to keep you and your child safe and healthy. By providing education, research and evidence-based programs in collaboration with the community, our injury prevention and community education teams strive to make Orange County the safest county in America.
