SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Safety Program

SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Safety Program

The SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Safety Program is dedicated to the prevention of childhood injuries. It also serves as the lead agency for Safe Kids St. Louis, a local chapter of the national Safe Kids program.

Since its inception more than 20 years ago, the SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Safety Program has contributed to a 45 % national reduction in child fatalities resulting from unintentional injuries, saving more than 38,000 lives.

We partner with Kohl’s 4 Kids and West County EMS and Fire Protection District to provide free car seat inspections/installations by certified child passenger safety (CPS) technicians and distribution of properly fitted bicycle helmets.

Some of the many services we offer also include infant and child Family and Friends CPR classes, home and sport safety equipment, and education to ensure our children’s safety.
