Falls are a serious problem in Lee County. In fact, the numbers are alarming: 144 people died from falls in Lee County in 2007.

Lee County's death rate from falls is more than double the state average. Yet falls are preventable. The Lee County Injury Prevention Coalition is leading a community-wide effort to prevent falls and fall-related injuries and deaths. The program is appropriately named “Step WiseLee.”

The most important tool in this effort is providing information about how falls can be prevented. Please use the information at right to help Lee County residents you know who are susceptible to falls to make their homes safer. A few simple home improvement and lifestyles changes can make a major difference.
By working together, we can reduce the number of falls and fall-related injuries and deaths in our community!
