Nevada Injury Prevention Program: Goals

The goal of the Nevada Injury Prevention Program is to reduce injuries, disabilities and deaths due to intentional and unintentional injuries by helping Nevada residents remain:

  • Safe at Home from injuries resulting from fires, falls, poisonings, drowning, child abuse and domestic violence.
  • Safe on the Move from injuries caused by motor vehicle, bicycle, and motorcycle crashes, as well as injuries sustained by pedestrians.
  • Safe at School from injuries sustained on the playground, while playing sports, and as a result of youth violence.
  • Safe at Work from injuries related to environmental hazards, equipment, and working conditions.
  • Safe in the Community from unintentional injuries caused by fires, falls, and drowning in public places, and from intentional injuries such as self-inflicted injury and assault.
