Safety Town is a comprehensive one-week safety education program offered every summer by the American Red Cross Metro NY North Chapter that teaches awareness and accident prevention skills to children entering kindergarten or first grade in the fall.
Under guidance of classroom teachers and with the help of representatives from the police, fire, EMS departments and other community helpers, children learn safety tips in a classroom setting and are fitted with their own bike safety helmet that they keep.
Daily lessons include handouts and additional reference information for parents and caregivers. At the end of each week of training, the graduates each receive a Safety Town diploma.
Sessions available each week. Your child would attend the same session time each day for one week.
Sessions will be held at the Dorothy Hamill Skating Rink at 1 Sue Merz Way, Greenwich, CT 06830.
June 6-10 and June 13-17.
Morning sessions run 9:00 to 11:30 and the afternoon session from 12:30 to 3:00.
