Children’s Hospital of Michigan in partnership with Kohl’s Cares has launched the Kohl’s SAFE 4 Kids (KS4K) program to Strengthen Accident-Free Environments.

KS4K focuses on pregnant women, caregivers, and children from birth to five years of age to enhance their ability to prevent the leading causes of unintentional childhood injuries in our community.

KS4K NOW offers SAFE Baby Workshops “Learn Online & Pick Up”

During these challenging times, KS4K aspires to continue educating caregivers and ensuring children stay SAFE. Due to necessary social distancing and state implemented restrictions, KSFK SAFE Baby workshops are being offered online including an appointment for “curb side” pick up. More information provided below.

The SAFE Baby Workshop is a safety workshop that focuses on the leading causes of unintentional and preventable injuries to children. Each topic includes free safety materials and equipment to help ensure children will be SAFE:

  • Fire Prevention – Smoke Alarm
  • Car Seat Safety – Convertible Car Seat
  • Burn Prevention – Hot Water Tester

NEW “Learn Online & Pick Up “ is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

If a caregiver is interested in more information, fill out the form below and a KS4K staff member will respond with the following:

  1. Learn Online - The online learning website link(s) and documents needed for pick up – video(s) are required to watch.
  2. Make Appointment – You can choose your appointment time for the next available pick up date - Dates are scheduled based on volunteer availability.
  3. Show up - Arrive at your scheduled pick up day & time, STAY IN YOUR VEHICLE, turn in completed paperwork - Caregivers MUST stay in their vehicles, staff will greet and load safety equipment.

It’s that easy!!!

Please note: Scheduling an appointment ends the WEDNESDAY before the next “Pick Up” day. Caregivers will only receive ONE of each type of safety equipment (car seat/per child, tub tester, smoke alarm, etc). Also, caregivers that have attended a KS4K workshop in the past are NOT eligible.

 

KS4K Focus Areas:

Fire Prevention – Children under 8 are at greatest risk of death and injury due to home fires, properly working smoke alarms and being prepared can prevent these tragedies.

Child Passenger Safety – A high rate of misuse and nonuse of car seats is frequently observed in the Detroit area, while properly used car seats reduce the incidence of severe injuries and deaths in infants and children.

Burn Safety – According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), every day, more than 300 children ages 0 to 19 are treated in emergency rooms for burn-related injuries and two children die as a result of being burned. However, these emotionally and physically damaging injuries can be prevented.

Initially, the KS4K program will serve families in five Detroit zip codes (48224, 48205, 48219, 48223 and 48228) to educate community professionals, parents, other caregivers, and school-aged children to enhance their knowledge of the behavioral modifications necessary to prevent tragedies.

If you are an agency working with families with children from birth to eight years old in these zip codes and would like to learn more about our program, please email Kohl’s Safe 4 Kids at:chmSAFETY@dmc.org.
