Green Bay Police and Fire host Safety Night with mock crash scenario

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – The Green Bay Police Department and the Green Bay Metro Fire Department held a public safety night with the city hall academy on Thursday.

Together, the two agencies showed how they would respond to a mock crash of someone driving while intoxicated as part of an eight-week program that gives the people who live in the community a better understanding of the city’s processes.

“Seeing this collaboration, I think it’s important,” said Green Bay Metro Fire Chief Matthew Knott. “We work together on a daily basis because we’re great partners in public safety. Like I said, this is a great way to highlight and showcase what we do.”

One of the people involved in the academy says everyone should do it to get a better understanding of how things run in the department’s day-to-day life.
