Become a Safe Community
- “In a recent NSC study, after 10 years of rising injury rates in one community, the decision to seek Safe Community accreditation was followed by a two-year decline in injury hospitalizations; nearly 300 hospitalizations may have been prevented, saving the community more than $14 million in healthcare costs
- A long-standing smoke alarm installation program in one Safe Community has shown that fire deaths have been reduced by 75%
- A comprehensive approach to reducing prescription drug overdoses in a Midwestern Safe Community has resulted in 4.5 tons of medications collected in drop boxes, hundreds of clinicians trained in effective pain management without opioids, a communitywide campaign on addiction and treatment, and training for first responders on naloxone use.” (SOURCE: http://www.nsc.org/learn/NSC-Initiatives/Pages/safe-communities.aspx)
