Safe Kids Clark County
Safe Kids Clark County is a member of Safe Kids USA, a grassroots network of more than 600 coalitions and chapters that work closely with law enforcement officers, firefighters, paramedics, health professionals, educators, businesses, public policy makers, and, most importantly, parents and kids to promote safety.
Safe Kids Clark County has a new meeting date and will now meet monthly from 10 am-11:30 am on the third Tuesday of every month at ESD 112, 2500 NE 65th Avenue, Vancouver; with the exception of no meetings in July and August. Some of their priorities are proper usage of children's car seats, baby's safe sleep, reducing child vehicular injuries and deaths as well as water safety. Safe Kids Clark County maintains the life jacket loaner stations at Klineline Pond and Marine Park during the summer months.
