National Playground Safety Week (April 24-28) is quickly approaching. You may be looking for items to share with the families you serve. Prevent Child Injury has released a new toolkit on safe playground surfacing, including a customizable press release, newsletter/blog article, sample social media posts, shareable graphics, and links to existing safe surfacing resources. Please use these materials in any way you can to support National Playground Safety Week and distribute this information to others in your networks. Also, please sign up to become a member of Prevent Child Injury if not already a member (http://www.preventchildinjury.org/join-us/).
