Fetal Infant Child Mortality Review

┬áThe Big Horn County Public Health Department participates in the county’s FICMR Team, meeting quarterly to examine deaths of local persons under the age of 18. The purpose is to determine whether the death was preventable – not with intent to blame, but rather to work with the community towards education and prevention measures related to that particular type of incident.

Past projects include purchasing signs to remind drivers and passengers to use their seatbelts, speaking with owners of local bars regarding caution in selling to minors, and posting information at a popular river swimming site to alert parents that children have drowned at this location.
