EMSC is committed to enhancing injury prevention resources and initiatives throughout the emergency care system. In 2004 and 2005, EMSC awarded a total of 21 small grants to local ambulance services and collaborating agencies to carry out injury prevention projects at the community level. Many of these projects focused on training child safety technicians and sponsoring child safety seat checkpoints. Other projects targeted unsafe teen driving, drowning prevention, home safety, and fire and life safety training for school children.
