This report is designed to be used in conjunction with the Texas Child Fatality Review Team Annual Report, which provides a comprehensive analysis of the incidence of child death in Texas and examines the state's fatality response system. Four types of preventable death are the focus of this report: deaths by drowning, gunshot wounds, poisoning, and those caused by fire. This report examines causes and preventive intervention or education strategies. A section of the report is devoted to each of the four causes of death. The first part of each section presents information concerning what factors cause death. For each type of accidental death, environmental factors, as well as ethnic, age, gender, and cultural factors, are examined. The second part of each section presents ideas for preventing accidental deaths of children. Contains 53 references. (EV)
