Teaching Kids and Families Life Saving Behaviors

Join Dean & St. Mary’s for Safety Saturday on June 8

Safety Saturday is returning to the Capitol Square on June 8 from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  Each year, Safety Saturday provides an opportunity to demonstrate safe behaviors and teach people how to live, work and play safely.

Safety Saturday is a cooperative effort between the City of Madison Fire Department and more than 25 public and private organizations throughout Dane County.  It’s an event that educates people of all ages, teaching them how to make safe decisions, prevent injuries and use safety devices such as seat belts, bike helmets and smoke alarms.

“Each of the partner organizations in this event has worked hard to produce interactive examples of potential hazards, ways to prevent them and what to do when an emergency occurs,” says Madison Fire Marshal Ed Ruckriegel.

Dean Clinic and St. Mary’s Hospital will be on-hand to offer heart healthy games and information, as well as teach families about proper nutrition and exercise through Dean’s Catching Healthy Habits game.  Families can take home a healthy fortune teller to play with friends.

Dean Foundation will also be on-hand to offer information on bicycle safety.  Kids can visit with Crash Helmet and ensure their bike helmets fit properly.  Information on general sports safety will also be available along with Crash Helmet coloring sheets and stickers for the kids.

For more information on the Safety Saturday event, please contact the Madison Fire Department at (608) 261-9845 or visit their website at: www.madisonfire.org
