Prevention 1st works with local and national agencies and coalitions to further our mission of creating and distributing research-based injury prevention training, education and materials.
We work with Community Health Strategies and its division Fireproof Children, which provides research-based training and educational materials on fire safety and injury prevention, to develop and deliver many of our programs.
For Foodlink’s “Cooking Matters” program we provided a kitchen and cooking safety curriculum to use with more than 500 participating families.
We work with Rochester Fire Department numerous other Home Fire Drill partners to promote our biannual message of Change Your Clock;Test Your Alarms; Practice Your Home Fire Drill; Alarm Goes Off You Get Out! www.homefiredrill.org™
We have developed a fire safety curriculum to become part of the Child Health course at Monroe Community College.
By invitation we participated in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s U.S. rollout of the World Health Organization/ UNICEF World Report on Child Injury Prevention and the CDC’s Protect the Ones You Love: Child Injuries are Preventable Initiative. The report has now been published and CDC resources made available on an accompanying website
