Safe Kids Peoria Area Coalition
Safe Kids Peoria Area is a local coalition of Safe Kids Worldwide that works to prevent injuries through:
- Child Passenger Safety
- Pedestrian Safety
- Fire Safety
- Water Safety
- Youth Sports Safety
Check out our Calendar of Safety Events!
Our coalition is led by Children's Hospital of Illinois and American Red Cross 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.
Safe Kids Peoria Area hosts monthly car seat fitting stations in Peoria, East Peoria, and Tremont to provide child passenger safety education. 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 on the first Tuesday every other month, 10-11am, (September, November, January, March, May, July) at the American Red Cross - Central Illinois Chapter in Peoria.
