OUCH Mobile Texting Campaign

Welcome to OUCH Mobile Texting Campaign.

OUCH Safety Tip Message Campaign

Children's Hospital & Research Center at Oakland, with funding from Kohl's, launched the OUCH mobile texting campaign in July 2011. Designed to help parents and caregivers keep kids safe, OUCH sends out twice-monthly health and safety text messages. Subscribers opt into OUCH by texting "OUCH" (for English) and "UY" (for Spanish) to 30644. When opting in, and approximately every third message, subscribers will be notified that standard text messaging rates apply.
Subcribers can opt out any time by texting "STOP" to 30644.

Please help Contra Costa County EMS spread the word about this program which has the potential to keep kids out of harm's way!
