We offer low-cost child safety products and our inventory includes adaptable safety products designed specifically for children with special health care and educational needs. Our products include bicycle helmets, to child passenger safety seats, in-home safety products, and medical alert bracelets just to name a few.

Trained Safety Store educators are on-hand to educate families on proper installation and maintenance of the safety products available through the store. These educators are able to guide families to the appropriate products to help keep their kids safe.
The Safe Escape program, offered through the Safety Store, helps make sure children with special needs can be safely and quickly evacuated in case of an emergency.
We offer free programs in many Iowa communities to show how to protect children from unintentional injuries, the leading cause of disability and death to children ages birth to 14 years of age.
