Amber Emerson, RN, coordinator of Safe Kids Minot, a coalition of community groups concerned about childhood safety.
A registered nurse, Emerson has been associated with Trinity Health for 18 years, working in geriatrics, medical-surgical, and clinic nursing, as well as in the G.I. Lab.
“Becoming a parent has shown me that children can have big dreams, and it’s important that they have the chance to grow up and follow those dreams,” Emerson said. “We’re a growing community with an ever-expanding need to keep our kids safe. The best way to do that is through education and providing the necessary resources.”
Safe Kids Minot is an affiliate of Safe Kids Worldwide, a nonprofit global network that helps families and communities keep kids safe from injury. Trinity Health is the lead agency for Safe Kids Minot.
Safe Kids is a nonprofit organization that builds coalitions to prevent unintentional childhood injury-the number one cause of death in children under the age of one in the United States. Safe Kids combines education, awareness, environmental changes, safety device distribution and advocacy to get communities more involved in child safety to keep our families safe! Our areas of focus for safety are at home, at play and on the way. If you would like Safe Kids to be involved with your family or organization please contact Amber Emerson, Safe Kids Coordinator.
