Safe Kids Stark County, in conjunction with the Stark County Health Department, is proud to release the 2012 Childhood Injury Report, and the sub-report for the Alliance Area.

These reports breaks down e-code (etiology) data from Affinity Medical Center, Akron Children’s Hospital, Alliance Community Hospital, Aultman Hospital and Mercy Medical Center from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012 and provides information on the leading causes of injury.  This report includes patients under age 17 treated at the Emergency Department or Immediate Care Facility.  This year, the report also includes injury severity for the first time.

The Coalition hopes to use this data to increase programming efforts done in the community.  If you have questions about this report please contact Safe Kids at 330-493-9904 or safekids@starkhealth.org.

IIn 2008 the Ohio Legislature passed Ohio’s Booster Seat Law, with the Governor signing it into law in January 2009.  This amendment to the Ohio Revised Code will require children ages 4 to 8 or who are less than 4’9 (57 inches) to ride in a federally approved booster seat - for example a 6yr old 4'10" child is exempt as is a 9 yr old 4'2" child.  This secondary law will carry a minimum fine of $25.00. Written warnings will begin October 7, 2009 and citations will begin April 7, 2010.  For specific information regarding the booster seat law, please go to www.boostohiokids.org or click here.  Please contact Safe Kids Stark County with your questions or to have your booster seat inspected.
