Community-based interventions employ a broad array of strategies that include education/behavior change, engineering/ technology, and legislation/enforcement.
Educational strategies increase awareness of injury risk or the importance of risk-reducing behaviors, and they may include media broadcasts, public service announcements, classroom instruction, or written material.
Behavioral strategies have the same goal and may involve incentives, negative feedback, and modeling.
Alternatively, the goal of engineering/technology interventions is to alter the physical environment (such as placing speed bumps on neighborhood streets or installing smoke detectors in homes) or modify the design of safety devices (such as bicycle helmets or child passenger restraints).
Finally, legislation/enforcement interventions involve the passage and enforcement of new laws or the increased enforcement of existing laws.
