Nationally, more than 3,500 infants a year, without a prior known illness or injury, die suddenly and unexpectedly. In Rome, 12 children have died since 2015 because they were not in a safe sleep space.  The FRC is working with the Rome/Floyd Commission on Children and Youth, Department of Public Health, and the Floyd County Child Abuse Protocol Committee to raise awareness about the ABCs of Safe Sleep by hosting a “Safe Sleep Tour”. Our goal is to have zero preventable infant deaths due to unsafe sleep by spreading awareness about safe sleep and safe sleep environments through proper education and resources. Know the ABCs of Safe Sleep video tells how to keep a napping or sleeping baby safe. If your business would like to host the tour for 1-2 weeks, please reach out to [email protected] .
