Safety City teaches kids important lessons in Wisconsin Rapids

WISCONSIN RAPIDS (WAOW) -

Between the swimming pools and bike rides, summer can present some dangers to children.

That's where Safety City comes in.

Children in Wisconsin Rapids are learning how to stay safe around water and near busy streets. The program also teaches them about poison safety and why it's so important to buckle up.

"We're catching kids when they're sponges—it's early on and they can recognize when they get older—teach their peers when they go to school," Wisconsin Rapids Police Department Safety Officer Kasandra Borchardy said.

The event runs through Friday—that's when parents get to join their children for their graduation ceremony from Safety City.
