GREEN BAY – Electricity, fire and many household chemicals can be dangerous – even fatal – to children. That’s why, on Saturday, Jan. 26 Bellin Health and Safe Kids Greater Green Bay will host the 14th annual Superbowl of Safety event.
The family event, scheduled from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. at the Lambeau Field Atrium, teaches children and parents relevant tips on a wide range of safety topics, including car seat, food, poison, sun and water safety, proper 9-1-1 dialing and crime prevention safety.
Admission and parking are free.
“The annual Superbowl of Safety event is an opportunity to engage children and their families in an interactive way to better educate them about serious safety issues as well as general health issues,” said Tracy McCormick, Packers Partnership Executive for Bellin Health. “At the event, parents receive expert advice on keeping their children safe and healthy. Although the messages are serious, like correct 9-1-1 emergency dialing, they are shared in a way that makes them fun and memorable for kids.”
Event highlights will include safety booth demonstrations, high energy training drills with former Green Bay Packers player, Ahman Green, and participation in a game of Family Feud, among other offerings.
Safe Kids members at the event include: American Red Cross; Happily Ever After Animal Sanctuary; Bellin Health; Brown County Public Safety; Brown County Sheriff’s Department; Center for Childhood Safety; Crime Prevention Association of Brown County; the State Department of Natural Resources; De Pere Health Department; Greater Green Bay YMCA; Green Bay, De Pere, Ashwaubenon and Howard Fire Rescue; National Weather Service; NEW Curative Rehabilitation; Oneida Health Center; U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary; U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission; the Brown County Lead Coalition; Wisconsin Public Service; Wisconsin State Patrol; Managed Health Services; and UW Extension.
