Safety Town is a fun five-day safety awareness program that is designed for children entering kindergarten. Through the use of music, crafts, videos, books, community speakers and a child-sized town, the children are taught basic safety lessons that they will use for the rest of their lives.
Every day the children face new challenges as they learn the proper way to cross the street, buckle their seat belt, wear a helmet while riding a bicycle, and understand the basic traffic rules. In addition, we cover other safety lessons such as: stranger danger, water, fire, school bus, and how to dial 911.
Representatives from the local Division of Police, Sheriff’s Office, Division of Fire and others participate at Safety Town to make every day an unforgettable experience for the children.
