The Safe Communities Coalition concept was developed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).  It is a program that promotes injury prevention activities at the local level to solve local highway and traffic safety and other injury problems.  Safe Communities Coalition of Pitt County was initially funded by NHTSA in 1996 for three years.  It was one of the original four demonstration projects in the country. 

When the demonstration project was completed Coalition members decided to continue injury prevention efforts in the community.  In 2000 Safe Communities of Pitt County incorporated as a nonprofit 501(c)(3).  Since that time, the Coalition has had a strong presence in the community and promoted and supported many injury prevention efforts and interventions.

The goals of the Coalition are to identify problems, develop, implement and evaluate interventions to make travel safer in Pitt County.  The Coalition is a comprehensive and community-based group with representation from citizens, law enforcement, public health, medical, injury prevention, education, business, civic and service groups, public work offices, and traffic safety advocates.  These members provide program input, direction, and involvement to develop solid support for the Coalition’s life saving injury prevention strategies.

Anyone is invited to join our Safe Communities Coalition. We meet the first Wednesday of each month (excluding July and December) at 3:45 pm.  For more information contact Jennifer Smith 252-847-8668 or click
