MIDDLETON (WKOW) -- Firefighters in Middleton gave kids some hands on experience to keep them safe during a fire.
More than 20 local organizations educated parents and put on activities for the kids at the fourth annual Family Safety Day in Middleton.
Kids dressed like firefighters and had the opportunity to learn how rescue crews respond to accidents. There were also sessions on food safety and how to properly wear a bike helmet.
"The more hands on things you can do really works out better," said David Kasdorf, a community awareness officer for the Middleton Police Department.
The event taught families how to stay safe not only in emergencies, but in day-to-day life.
