KidsTown presents Safety Week
June 18 - 21, 2015
There are a number of emergencies that are beyond our control and there are emergencies than can be prevented. We bring you the experts in many different areas of safety to see how you can play a part in preventing emergencies and how to handle situations that do arise.
Safety week will provide you and your family an opportunity to talk about how to prevent emergencies and what to do in case of an emergency. Also, have a chance to meet some of our emergency service men and women and volunteers throughout our community who are working together to keep us safe. Check out our events calendar for specific dates and time.
*Please note that due to the nature of our vendors’ occupations cancellations may occur as a result of an emergency in our community.
