Safety Town

Thank you to everyone for a GREAT 2023 Safety Town. Please check back next spring for info on our 2024 Safety Town, tentatively planned for June.

Safety Town is a fun four-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 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 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 Union County Health Department, Marysville Division of Police, Union County Sheriff’s Office, Marysville Division of Fire and others participate at Safety Town to make every day an unforgettable experience for the children.
