Riley Safety Store & Community Outreach Programs
Our Community Education and Child Advocacy team at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health was recently awarded a grant to provide funding specifically for the creation and continuation of a pilot online children’s hospital-based Safety Store, with integrated Safe Escape program. The Riley Safety Store is the first of its kind in the nation and was developed to help provide communities and families with the child safety and emergency evacuation products they need to help keep their child and family safe. Most injuries we see, can be easily prevented through education and the proper use of child safety equipment. We provide all necessary instructions for proper use of each safety tool, including video demonstrations. We also continue to showcase innovations and new directions for addressing child safety, health and fitness. For more information, please visit the Riley Safety Store site.
Riley Safety Store Programs
Safe Escape is a program of the Riley Safety Store which provides families the education and access for evacuation products. These tools help children with healthcare needs or disabilities exit a home safely in the event of a fire, natural disaster or other emergency. For more information, visit the Safe Escape site.
Jump Kids Jump is an available resource to help children get active. As communities across the state and country continue to battle growing childhood obesity rates, it is essential children begin getting active from early ages. The kit includes a video which provides detailed instruction for activities children can learn to help develop jump-roping skills and foster interest in continued future activity. For more information, visit the Jump Kids Jump site.
We encourage children to be active, but do so in the safest manner possible. Racing for Safety was developed for adults to have a guide on how to plan and present safety courses for children who use bikes, scooters, skateboards and any other mode of transportation with wheels. To learn more about the program and safety courses, view videos and download safety tools, please visit the Racing for Safety site.
