September 11, 2018

Whether it’s a car seat installation check, driving lessons or a class for young traffic offenders, Mercy Injury Prevention is working hard to educate people in the Ozarks about being safe on area roadways.

That dedication has earned Mercy Injury Prevention the 2018 “Arrive Alive” award from the Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety Southwest Region. The award recognizes an individual or group that has shown exemplary dedication and leadership in the field of highway safety.

“Our emergency rooms see the effects of improperly installed car seats or drivers who aren’t following traffic rules,” said Daphne Greenlee, manager of Mercy Injury Prevention. “Those injuries are preventable, so we have tackled the problem by addressing the behavior and providing help.”
