The Alameda County EMS Agency is proud to partner with Safe Kids Worldwide to operate our Childhood Injury Prevention Program (CIPP). The program's mission is to reduce the number of unintentional injuries amongst children 18 years of age and younger. Unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death to California residents from birth through age 40.

The Wheeled Sports Safety Program provides age appropriate, interactive presentations on the importance of helmet use. Presentations focus on rules and best practices for using non-motorized wheeled vehicles (bikes, scooters, skateboards) for children ages eighteen and under. Staff travels to local schools, community based organizations, local governments and recreation centers and other locations to deliver presentations.
