There’s a deadly epidemic running rampant through our streets, infecting millions of men, women and children each year in communities across our nation.  The shocking part is most Americans don’t even think of it as a health problem at all.

IT STRIKES SUDDENLY AND WITHOUT WARNING

Maybe you’re running down to the store to pick up a loaf of bread.  Perhaps you’re taking the family out to dinner.  Or just on your way to work.  Suddenly and without warning, this epidemic strikes another victim every 16 seconds of every minute of every hour of every day.  And no one is immune.

IF THIS ISN’T A HEALTH CARE CRISIS, WHAT IS?

It takes victims quietly - one here, one there - until before you know it, it’s out of control.  More than 40,000 otherwise healthy Americans die every year.  Over half a million are hospitalized.  Another four million end up in emergency rooms.  If this isn’t an urgent health care crisis in our communities, then what is?

 THE EPIDEMIC IS MOTOR VEHICLE INJURIES

And it’s caused by the common, everyday, ordinary, but totally preventable, traffic crash. The motor vehicle injury problem has been ignored far too long and now is the time to do something about it. 

Stark County Safe Communities is “Taking this Problem to the Streets” and would like you to join us in this important effort.  Stark County Safe Communities was founded in 2002 and is involved in many community activities, a few being the Seat Belt Challenge, Seat Belt Surveys, OVI Checkpoints, Child Safety Seat Checks, School Safety programs, Senior driving issues, and many more community events. There are no membership fees or dues to join the Safe Communities Coalition.  All you need is a concern for traffic safety and a desire to help.  We meet every other month.  Attendance at the meetings is preferred, but not mandatory.

Please fill out the following membership form and e-mail it or return to Stark County Safe Communities @ 4500 Atlantic Blvd. NE, Canton, OH  44705.  If you have any questions please call Sharon George at (330) 430-3835.

PLEASE JOIN US IN OUR EFFORTS TO MAKE STARK COUNTY A TRUE “SAFE COMMUNITY”
