SUBWAY® restaurants of the Grand Rapids-Kalamazoo-Battle Creek and surrounding areas just kicked off the Playin’ Safe campaign, which encourages and rewards kids for making safe choices throughout the summer.
Here are some quick safety statistics (from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention):
- Accidental injury is the number one cause of death among children ages 19 and under in the U.S.
- Each year, one out of every four children needs medical attention for an accidental injury.
- Injuries due to transportation were the leading cause of death for children.
- Drowning ranks fifth among the leading causes of unintentional injury death in the U.S. States.
- For every child who dies from drowning, another five receive emergency department care for nonfatal submersion injuries.
Kids observed making safe choices such as crossing the street in a cross walk, wearing protective gear while riding a bike or learning how to swim safely will be given a safety citation by local law enforcement.
It’s nice to be rewarded for making safe choices.

Swim lessons so I am less freakish around the water! 🙂
They have to always wear their helmets when riding bikes or scooters
I have a strict rule about bike helmets and crossing the street is never allowed without an adult!
Whenever I take my kids to the pool, I go in with them and make sure they stay close.
My kids wear lifejackets near water—especially Michigan.
We stay safe by having our kids take swim lessons. We’ve got too much water around us to not stay safe around it.
We always hold hands in parking lots, look both ways before before crossing the street, wear helmets and sunscreen. We also follow the rule that if you can’t see me I can’t see you, stay within eye sight.
We always use sunscreen, wear helmets and I always watch them in their kiddie pool, even if it’s only 6 inches deep. You never know what could happen!
I keep 2 gallons of water in the car for emergency dehydration purposes. I also set my timer on my phone for every hour to remind us to reapply sunscreen. I keep a first aid kit in my thirty one tote and we have strict rules for our pool as big lakes.
My 7 year old took a major spill over his handlebars last summer (he’s OK but it cracked his bike helmet) so now we are extra careful about making sure they wear their helmets while riding!
Dispite the fact that my boys are on the older side, 12 & 14, I still choose to watch them in the pool here as they swim and dive. Also, I observe all the safe driving laws as I’m really setting an example for my two soon-to-be drivers. We practice caution also as we do our fire pit fires here and NEVER burn unless conditions are good, watching our fire at all times and having a hose and water bucket near by!!!!!
No texting and driving.
We stay safe by always wearing seatbelts.
I don’t take my eyes off my daughter when she’s in the water
