Safety Town helps children learn about traffic and personal safety
The gym of St. Paul Lutheran Church at 201 Elm St. is decked out as a mini city with pop-up fabric houses and a “road” around the town. Pedal cars allow the kids to practice driving. There’s even a traffic light, which helps the kids learn about crossing the street. An instructor describes potential hazards and engages the children in a discussion about how to respond to certain traffic situations.
An officer from the Northville Police Dept. visits each weekly session to talk to the kids about “stranger danger” – how to keep themselves safe in their neighborhoods and in public places; and how to act around guns (including those in their homes). A member of the Northville Fire Dept. also visits and educates the kids about fire safety.
The program runs Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The cost is $105 for residents/$115 for non-residents. Register by calling the Parks and Recreation office at 248-349-0203 or go to their website.
