Madison – Dane County

saving lives, preventing injuries

Safe Communities of Madison-Dane County is a local non-profit coalition that brings together public and private sector partners to save lives, prevent injuries and make our community a safer place.

We focus on projects and programs with a track record of positive impact and success. Our core areas of work correspond to our community’s top causes of injury and injury-related death: Traffic Safety, Pedestrian Safety, Child Safety, Drug Poisoning Prevention, Falls Prevention, and Suicide Prevention.

More than 350 organizations – including area businesses, law enforcement and fire/EMS services, neighborhoods, health care leaders, youth and senior-serving agencies – actively collaborate with us on programs to make Dane County a safer place to live, work and play.
