Safety Town is a 15-hour safety education program for children who will be starting Kindergarten in Fall. It teaches safety awareness and accident prevention in a fun, hands-on setting. Taught by a certified teacher with the assistance of a member of the Sheboygan Police Department, kids practice safety skills both indoors and out on our miniature Safety Town lot.
Students learn about pedestrian safety, poisons, strangers, guns, bus safety, and more. In addition, we bring in experts to talk about dental care, pet safety, fire safety, and water safety. The Sheboygan Fire Department, Sheboygan County Health Department, Sheboygan Police Department, and Community Recreation Department all help instruct the children during this 5-day program.
