Injury Free Bus

Injury is the leading cause of death for children ages 1-12 years in Miami-Dade County. Deaths represent a fraction of the number of severe injuries that result in hospitalization. Research demonstrates that hands on training of child safety practices and access to affordable safety items significantly increases parent/caregiver knowledge and safety practices of these devices. The Injury Free Mobile offers parents & caregivers with interactive education and skills building in a simulated home setting, and access to low-to-no-cost safety items.

The Injury Free Mobile offers hands on training in Spanish, English and Creole. The program visits different sites throughout Miami Dade County including local hospital clinics, schools, daycare centers, pre-scheduled health fairs and expositions.
