Review community data. How are people getting hurt? Where are they getting hurt? Why are they getting hurt? Use data from hospitals, health departments, colleges and universities, police departments, schools, any local or regional data to help you determine what injuries are occurring in your community.
Conduct community assessment. What programs, policies, practices or partnerships exist to keep the community safe and healthy? What activities exist in the community, schools, workplace, etc.? An inventory of programs will help you identify where efforts are duplicated and where gaps exist.
