Safety Town

Recently I joined the Safety Town group for their Media Day. For those of you who are unfamiliar, Safety Town is a program for incoming kindergarteners brought to you by the Madison Fire Department, the Madison Police Department, and the Safe Kids Coalition. Children participate in activities in an actual small-scale city that includes streets, homes, and sidewalks with the purpose of teaching them about safety and injury prevention in their community, including lessons on traffic safety. The children also have the opportunity to interact with actual City of Madison Police Officers and Fire Fighters to help them learn a new safety lesson each day.

Take a look at some photos of Safety Town's Media Day!
