Safe Kids Peoria Area Coalition
Safe Kids Peoria Area is a local coalition of Safe Kids Worldwide that works to prevent injuries through:
- Car seat safety
- Drug safety
- Pedestrian safety
Check out our Calendar of Safety Events!
Our coalition is led by Children's Hospital of Illinois and focuses its efforts on Peoria, Tazewell, and Woodford counties. Many community organizations are active members of Safe Kids Peoria Area and use their expertise to promote safety.
Children's Hospital of Illinois hosts monthly car seat fitting stations in Peoria, East Peoria, and Tremont to provide child passenger safety education. Safe Kids Peoria hosts several car seat checks throughout the summer in different neighborhoods. The coalition also increases public awareness by leading pedestrian safety efforts, such as International Walk to School Day.
We are always interested in adding local businesses and community members to the coalition. Please join us for our coalition meetings quarterly (January, April, July, November) at the Wellbeing Room at White School.
