Safety Town is a nation-wide effort to teach children ages 3 to 8 years old safe habits at a young age. Safety Town is a one-week program for children that teaches lessons about roles of police officers in their community. Class topics include traffic safety, water safety, safety signs, how to be safe around strangers, poison safety, bus safety, animal safety, and playground safety.
Each day has classroom-based safety themes, which are taught by police officers and qualified teachers who use appropriate videos, songs, games, and crafts to instill each lesson. The lessons are combined with hands-on activities in a miniature Safety Town City that children get to walk and ride through in pedal cars.
