The Council's mission is to lead in the effort to reduce preventable deaths, injuries and economic loss in public and private places throughout Missouri and the greater Mid West region. We serve as a credible, reliable resource for safety information, education and awareness in all aspects of American life - in traffic, at home, at work and at leisure.
Focusing on safety education as the key to long range reduction in avoidable deaths and injuries, the Council serves as a national resource for safety programs, working with and through partner organizations who deliver and/or fund these programs.
In the public policy arena, we suggest, support and promote safety legislation, with strong emphasis on gaining public understanding and acceptance of such laws and regulations.
This Council's role is unique; there is no comparable Missouri organization.
