Created in 1992, Safe Kids Gainesville/Hall County is one of 25 coalitions in Georgia. Northeast Georgia Medical Center and Health System, Inc serves as the Lead Agency for Safe Kids Gainesville/Hall County. Our programs are funded by The Medical Center Foundation's Healthy Journey Campaign. The coalition is made up of more than 100 members representing more than 30 community agencies. Safe Kids Gainesville/Hall County tracks childhood injury rates through Northeast Georgia Medical Center's Emergency Departments. Specific injury information is obtained on each patient age 14 and under and categorized for analysis. We are able to target our programs based on this data. In 2009, members of Safe Kids Gainesville/Hall County provided 463 programs and events that resulted in reaching an estimated 48, 400 children and their families, teachers and caregivers. Through these programs, over 6, 015 safety devices were distributed to families who were in need of them.
