Safety Town

NOTE: This year’s Safety Town Program is subject to change with respect to guidance from the State of Ohio and the Ohio Department of Health regarding COVID-19. See below for more details.

Safety Town Prepares Children Entering Kindergarten


Westlake Safety Town continues its 50-year tradition of educating our children entering kindergarten about traffic and school safety issues. Classes are offered in sessions throughout June and July.

Spearheaded by the Safety Town Director and a Community Service Officer (and with the help of an energetic team of student volunteers), Safety Town helps better prepare hundreds of pre-kindergarten children for the school experience. The program includes basic safety instruction on pedestrians, 9-1-1 usage, school bus procedures, fire and gun safety, and stranger caution. The children visit the fire and police stations for tours and end the session with a certificate at the graduation ceremony.
