Topics include:
  • Bicycle safety
  • Electrical safety
  • Animal safety
  • Bike safety is one of the topics on the Safety Town agenda.Fire, playground, school bus and traffic safety
  • Water safety
  • Poison education
  • Weather safety
  • Pedestrian safety

Guest speakers and unique activities top off a great program. Snacks are included.
