About Safety Town

Safety Town is an educational program introducing safety awareness and preventative practices to young children. Some of the topics covered include safety around strangers, fire, water, buses, traffic, and poison. Children will have an opportunity to learn through experiences in the Safety Town village, a field trip to the West Des Moines Police and Fire departments, and a variety of classroom activities.

Older students can participate in Safety Town as a program volunteer! Spots fill up quickly—reserve yours now!
