As a Level I Trauma Center, Regions Hospital is dedicated to offering injury prevention programs and outreach education within the East Metro and Western Wisconsin communities.  Recognizing that individual communities may offer their own injury prevention and educational programs, Regions Hospital can play a supporting role in your efforts.

Regions Hospital can support injury prevention and community outreach education by providing the following:

  • Support for public safety Open House events and Safety Camp activities
  • Car Seat Clinics
  • Safe Transportation of Children in Ambulances education
  • Access to safety education for school age children through programs sponsored by the American Trauma Society
  • Support for First Aid, CPR and AED training for community members and area businesses

Regions Hospital’s trauma staff is active in educating the public about injury prevention. Our children’s safety program Traumaroo helps kids develop safe behavior patterns. Through our Think First Program, young people are taught about risk-taking behaviors that can lead to head and spinal cord injuries.  Learn more about preventing burn injuries.

We are also involved in many other trauma prevention efforts including pedestrian safety, adolescent drinking and driving, fire prevention and seat belt education.
