This free program teaches children about vehicular, pedestrian, bicycle and fire safety in a child-size setting complete with buildings, paved streets and sidewalks, working traffic signals and traffic signs. The skills taught at Safety City will empower youngsters with the ability to avoid needless accidents and instill good safety habits at an early age.
