In the early days of the pandemic, CSN highlighted child safety areas relevant to children spending more time at home. These included firearm safety and drowning prevention, two topics featured in this month’s newsletter.
Firearm injuries and deaths are a public health epidemic. In the last weeks, while the nation has mourned recent gun violence deaths, new research has highlighted the need for more public health approaches to firearm safety. Over the next months, CSN will publish a resource on firearm safety, focused on how states, jurisdictions and communities can work to reduce firearm injuries and deaths.
Throughout this newsletter, you will find resources from our Children's Safety Now Alliance partners highlighted in purple.
