Kids, parents to score tips at Superbowl of Safety

01/15/2010

GREEN BAY — Electricity, fire and many household chemicals can be dangerous – even fatal – to children. That’s why, on Saturday, Jan. 30, Bellin Health and Safe Kids Greater Green Bay will host the 11th Annual Superbowl of Safety event.

The free family event, scheduled for 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Lambeau Field Atrium, offers children and parents educational tips on a broad range of safety topics, including car seat, poison, sun and water safety, proper 9-1-1 dialing and crime prevention safety. Admission and parking is free. All attending children will receive a gift.

“Superbowl of Safety provides expert advice on how to keep our kids safe,” said Debbie Leoni, Bellin Health community outreach coordinator. “Serious messages like water safety and the correct 9-1-1 emergency dialing will be shared with kids in a fun way.”

Door prizes at this year’s Superbowl of Safety include a free boy’s bicycle, a free girl’s bicycle and a free Green Bay Packers jersey signed by wide receiver Greg Jennings.

Other event highlights include a drive through Safety Town and an opportunity to sing and dance with children’s entertainer Randy Peterson. Safety mascots will interact with children including Sparky the Fire Pup, Buckle Bear, Crash Test Dummies Vince and Larry, Clicket the Cricket and Louie the Lightning Bug. Children are also encouraged to bring their torn or tattered stuffed animals for repair at the Stuffed Animal Repair station.

Superbowl of Safety draws more than 2,000 people annually. For more information, visit www.bellin.org.
