Trauma Services Outreach

Trauma Services conducts a variety of prevention programs in collaboration with schools, community groups and the court system throughout the Kansas City area and with national prevention programs.

  • Young Traffic Offenders Program - The Young Traffic Offenders Program was founded in 1997 to offer Missouri judges a new way to deter young people from speeding, drunken driving and other related driving offenses. When young drivers, ages 15 to 24 are convicted of these types of offenses, a judge can sentence them to attend a one-day program as part of their probation.
  • Aim 4 Peace – Aim 4 Peace is a comprehensive public health strategy designed to reduce violence by supporting people active in their community and by connecting residents to basic services.
  • Battle of the Belt – Battle of the Belt is a program developed to reduce the number of motor-vehicle-related injuries and fatalities among Missouri high school students by increasing their safety belt use.
  • Seat Belt Checks
  • Seasonal Safety Tip of the Month
  • Yellow Dot Program - provides a yellow dot window cling to be affixed in the back left rear window as a notification that there is medical and personal information available in the glove compartment of the involved vehicle. This decal provides immediate recognition for first responders that could be invaluable in providing emergency care but also in the patient handoff at the trauma center. The program is free to the community and has been shared with countless church groups and senior communities. 

  • Mocktail Social – Mocktail drink samples are offered to employees along with educational material about drinking and driving, and also with mocktail recipes.

  • TMC Injury Prevention / Community Outreach Efforts  (2013):  Many outreach/educational events around the metropolitan area included Fan Appreciation Night at the Mavericks, Mexican Consulate Bike Rodeo, MoDOT's Annual Big Truck Night, and the TMC/Trauma Services Annual Injury Prevention Fair, to name a few.
  • Annual Injury Prevention Fair
