The second three-year replication site of the program was The Kansas City Injury Coalition for Kids (KICK) at the Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City. The site started in January 1994 with $120,000 in IPP funding. Another $10,000 was added to extend activities until June 30, 1998.
The site built a broad coalition with 42 activities, the most of any expansion site; eight focus on bicycle safety. Kansas City also set up a sophisticated injury surveillance system, supported by a local foundation, which tracks injuries over time.
The project was part of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) national program Injury Free Coalition for Kids: Dissemination of a Model Injury Prevention Program for Children and Adolescents.
Since the program started, injury deaths for children and adolescents have decreased from an average of 54 to 41 per year and injury hospital admissions from 670 to 514.
The program developed a coalition of more than 50 government officials and community groups.
