ATLANTA (AP) – Georgia public health officials say they’ve received $1.2 million for injury prevention programs.

The Georgia Department of Public Health said in a news release that the money came in grants from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety.

The money is for five injury prevention programs:

– The Child Occupant Safety Project, which provides child safety seats and training;

– OASIS, an online program that gives the public access to statistics on deaths, hospital discharges, emergency room visits and motor vehicle crashes;

– The Crash Outcome Data Evaluation System, which links and analyzes data to identify opportunities for crash prevention;

– The Older Driver Safety Program, which helps maintain and enhance the mobility of older adults;

– The Georgia Emergency Medical Services Information System, a statewide database of pre-hospital care information.
