Help us spread the word for the safety of our children.
In the past three years in Polk County, we have had 36 children die due to unsafe sleep (17) or drowning (18). Each year, these deaths account for more than 50% of all childhood deaths, both preventable and non-preventable.
The most common preventable ways babies and young children die are from drowning, preventable crib death, and being left with caretakers that have anger management issues and are not suited to caring for a child.
