GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – June is National Safety Month and the Center for Childhood Safety in Green Bay is giving local families an opportunity to learn how to prevent the leading cause of childhood death, unintentional injury. 

Local 5’s Brittany Falkers sat down with Center for Childhood Safety Executive Director Kimberly Hess on Local 5 This Morning to talk about ways kids can get proactive about safety this summer. 

This year’s theme for National Safety Month is “What I Live For” and will focus on providing tips and resources for keeping people safe during activities they are passionate about.  That includes things such as sports or recreational activities, according to Hess. 

The Center for Childhood Safety is offering kids a chance to take the power of safety back in their own hands. Safety Town is a week-long summer program where kids learn bike and pedestrian safety and other safety topics through hands on and classroom activities.  

The next Safety Town is July 13 – 17 at Elmore Elementary in Green Bay.  The day-camp runs from 9 a.m. until noon. Sign up now on their Web site.
