Safe Communities

Safe Communities is a data-driven initiative to save lives and reduce injuries through collaboration among state, county, and local partners. 

MISSION

Save lives and reduce injuries on Ohio’s roads through leadership and partnering efforts with others interested in traffic safety, utilizing the most innovative and efficient methods possible of managing state and federal resources.

GOALS

The goals of Safe Communities include: 

  • Increase seat belt use and awareness

  • Increase impaired driving awareness

  • Increase motorcycle safety awareness

  • Coalition building

  • Traffic fatality review

TRAFFIC FATALITY REVIEW BOARD

The Traffic Fatality Review Board is comprised of local public health officials, first responders, Ohio State Highway Patrol officers, Ohio Department of Transportation officials, regional planning officials, and civil engineers. The goal of the Traffic Fatality Review Board is to review the circumstances of each traffic fatality that occurs in Erie County and to determine the factors contributing to the fatality. Recommendations are made by the Board to improve safety and prevent further traffic fatalities. 

COALITION

The responsibilities of the coalition are to provide education, promotion, prevention, and enforcement of safe driving practices through marketing, safe driving competitions, and community outreach events.
