National Center for Injury Prevention and Control Law and Legal Definition

The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control is a center within the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that aims to play the lead role in preventing and controlling injuries. The NCIPC aims to reduce the incidence, severity, and adverse outcomes of injury which is the leading cause of death for those between the ages of 1 to 44 years. NCIPC works closely with other federal agencies; national, state, and local organizations; state and local health departments; and research institutions to attain its mission of injury prevention. The NCIPC was established in 1992 by the CDC.

The NCIPC provides current information about fireworks-related injuries and deaths. [Phantom of Clearwater, Inc. v. Pinellas County, 894 So. 2d 1011, 1017 (Fla. 2nd DCA 2005)].
