Annual safety demo event returns to Capitol Square | Crime
An annual event hosted by area public safety groups returns to downtown Madison this weekend.
Each year, Safety Saturday provides an opportunity to demonstrate safe behaviors and teach people how to live, work and play safely, according to a city notice.
The event runs from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday on the Capitol Square and includes interactive demonstrations for all ages, organizers said.
Safety Saturday is a cooperative effort between the City of Madison Fire Department and more than 25 public and private organizations throughout Dane County, fire department spokeswoman Bernadette Galvez said.
The event educates people of all ages, teaching them how to make safe decisions, prevent injuries and use devices such as seat belts, bike helmets, AEDs, smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.
The organizations taking part in Safety Saturday use displays, games and activities to teach people how they can make safe decisions, so injuries are less likely to occur.
