ELK GROVE, CA – As part of a continuing effort to promote youth safety, the Elk Grove Police Department is pleased to announce that Safety Town is coming back on July 18th at District 56 (8230 Civic Center Drive). Safety Town is an exciting comprehensive educational program that introduces 5-year-olds to safety awareness. This program, which has been nationally recognized, teaches children entering kindergarten in the fall basic safety awareness and accident prevention through hands-on learning activities.
These basic safety awareness lessons will cover topics such as pedestrian and bicycle safety, school bus safety, poison prevention, basic fire prevention and home and water safety. All information is presented in age-appropriate fashion through song and hands-on activities. Safety Town students will also have an opportunity to explore a fire truck, police car, and a school bus.
