Every year in North Carolina, some 200 children die from accidental injuries and another 45,000 visit a doctor's office for treatment of such injuries. Housed within the N.C. Department of Insurance, Safe Kids North Carolina works to prevent these injuries in children 19 and under through education and outreach. There are 46 Safe Kids coalitions covering 71 counties in North Carolina.

Safe Kids North Carolina is one of more than 600 coalitions affiliated with Safe Kids Worldwide, whose mission is to prevent accidental childhood injury, the leading killer of children age 19 and younger.
