    June is National Safety Month -

    Injuries are a leading cause of disability for people of all ages
    and they are the leading cause of death for Americans ages 1 to 44. The
    good news is everyone can get involved to help prevent injuries.


    During National Safety Month, the Town Planner is working with community members to help reduce the risk of injuries.
    This June, we encourage you to learn more about important safety issues
    like prescription drug abuse, distracted driving, and slips, trips, and
    falls.


    Prescription drug abuse: Prescription painkiller
    overdoses are a growing problem in the United States, especially among
    women. About 18 women die every day from a prescription painkiller
    overdose more than 4 times as many as back in 1999. Slips, trips, and falls: One in 3 older adults falls each year. Many falls lead to broken bones and other health problems. Distracted driving: Doing other activities while
    driving like texting or eating increases your chance of crashing.
    Almost 1 in 5 crashes (18%) that injured someone involved distracted
    driving.

    You can make a difference. Find out ways to help reduce the risk of these safety issues.
