Safety & Injury Prevention

Safety Ranger Academy LogoThe CDC reports that unintentional injuries caused by burns, drowning, falls, poisoning, and road traffic are the leading cause of morbidity and mortality among children in the United States. Each year, more than 12,175 children and teens, 0-19 years of age, die from unintentional injuries, and more than 9.2 million are treated in emergency rooms for nonfatal injuries. As part of our commitment to keep kids healthy and safe, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin has developed Safety Ranger Academy, an interactive, teacher-facilitated e-learning program for grades K4-4 that empowers students to make positive changes in safety at home. The age-appropriate curriculum is delivered via online mini-lessons and classroom activities, and includes supporting take-home activities that encourage family engagement.  

Skills Learned

Safety Ranger Academy aligns with Wisconsin and National Health Education Standards, and teaches early elementary students home safety skills and prevention strategies for the top five safety risks:

  • Choking
  • Drowning
  • Falls
  • Fire and burns
  • Poisoning

Easy to Implement

Safety Ranger Academy can be used as a stand-alone home safety course or to supplement other home safety activities in your classroom. A comprehensive teacher's guide is included for each grade level course that prepares teachers to use the course in their classrooms. 

Outcomes

100%

100% of educators using Safety Ranger Academy reported students learned valuable information that would lead to behavior change.
