What about community involvement?


An accredited agency is committed to partnering with communities and health care systems to provide accident prevention and safety education programs. Agency staff participates in public education and safety events. From exacting listings in telephone directories to written policies for handling complaints, donations, and media inquiries, the accredited agency must demonstrate its role within the community. Since an important aspect of community involvement is diversity, an accredited agency must demonstrate its efforts to assess and address cultural and language diversity within the communities it serves.
