National Public Health Week, celebrated annually, recognizes the accomplishments of public health agencies both locally and nationally. This year, the week will be celebrated April 4-10 with the theme “Safety is NO Accident — Live Injury-Free.”

The Yolo County Health Department has several injury prevention programs, two of which will be highlighted next week:

* The Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program will display items that can be high in lead from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday at the Herbert Bauer Health and Alcohol, Drug & Mental Health Building, 137 N. Cottonwood St. in Woodland. Staff members will be present to answer questions and show how to test common household items for lead.

* The Car Seat Safety Program will sponsor a free car seat inspection event from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, April 8, in the parking lot at 137 N. Cottonwood St. Inspections will be done on a first-come, first-served basis. In Yolo County, more than 85 percent of child safety seats inspected have two or more errors in use that decrease the ability of the seat to keep a child safe in a crash, a news release said.

Each year, nearly 150,000 people die from injuries and almost 30 million people have injuries serious enough to visit the emergency room, Health Department statistics show. Furthermore, every day in the United States, about 75 people die as a result of unintentional poisoning, and another 2,000 are treated in emergency departments.

”Prevention is the cornerstone of public health,” said Jill Cook, Yolo County health director. ”Our job is to prevent first, mitigate second. The prevention programs provided by the Yolo County Health Department help keep our residents safe.”
