Suit up for Superbowl of Safety, presented by Bellin Health

GREEN BAY — Families looking to have a great time while learning important lessons about safety are encouraged to attend the 16th annual Safe Kids Superbowl of Safety, presented by Bellin Health.

This free, family-centric event takes place from 9 a.m.-noon Saturday, Feb. 21 at the KI Convention Center in Green Bay. Admission and parking are free.

Kids of all ages can become safety champions through a variety of fun, interactive displays presented by members of Safe Kids Greater Green Bay. Highlights include navigating carts through Safety Town to learn the rules of the road, as well as learning fun and safe science with Professor Gizmo (10-11 a.m.). The Bellin Hospital Emergency Department staff will have a booth set up to show kids the hospital is not a scary place to be.

“Childhood safety is such a critical issue, and we are pleased to offer this enjoyable opportunity for parents and kids to learn,” said Bonnie Parrott, Bellin Health Team Leader for Emergency Services. “By working together, we can decrease the number of children we see for accidents and preventable injuries.”

Children and families will learn about safety topics including fire, food, poison, car seat, sun and water safety, as well as crime prevention and when to dial 9-1-1. Green Bay Crime Prevention will sponsor a prescription/over-the-counter medication drop-off so families can safely dispose of any unused medications in the house.

All Superbowl of Safety participants will be entered into drawings for two bicycles and helmets. The event typically draws more than 2,000 people each year.
