WILMINGTON, NC - Kids love to have fun in the sun. As parents, we want to feel confident that our children know how to stay safe while playing outside, at the pool, and at the beach. New Hanover Regional Medical Center and Kohl’s Department Store have teamed up to host a kid-friendly Summer Safety Event on Friday, June 7 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Kohl’s parking lot on Eastwood Road.
The event is part of the summer-long Kohl’s Cares for Kids safety series. There will be hands-on games and activities for kids to learn about staying safe while having fun in the summertime. The first 600 children who attend will receive a free lifejacket.
“It is important for children to learn how to protect themselves while they are out having fun this summer,” says Tina Poole, Injury Prevention Coordinator at New Hanover Regional Medical Center’s Trauma Services department. “But the parents also need to educate themselves on how they can keep their children safe and prevent a tragedy from happening to them.”
The Department of Trauma Services at NHRMC encompasses direct patient care and provides outreach and educational programs to the community. They also provide the administrative supervision for all Trauma Services programs and maintain the trauma registry that reports vital data to state and national agencies.
