Rules and Statutes
The Injury Prevention Service was created in 1987 with a federal grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Commissioner of Health declared hospitalized and fatal burns, drowning/near drowning, and spinal cord injuries as reportable conditions for special study, and the Injury Prevention Service began statewide surveillance for those conditions that year. Since then, the injury surveillance system has expanded to include traumatic brain injuries, work-related deaths, traffic-related deaths, and violent deaths (homicide, suicide, etc.).
