Plymouth-area students who will be entering kindergarten in the fall are encouraged to participate in Safety Town this summer.

Safety Town students learn safety awareness and accident prevention in a fun, hands-on setting, as children practice “real-life” safety skills indoors and outdoors. Activities are guided by certified teacher Denise Roth and police officer Lindsay Baumhardt.

Safety Town will run from 9 to 11 a.m. Monday through Friday from July 23 to Aug. 2 (no class Friday, Aug. 3) at the Plymouth Youth Center, 609 North St. Fee is $40 per child.

Safety Town, which has not been offered in the area for several years, is being coordinated this year by Plymouth School District Community Education & Recreation. It will cover the following subjects:

  • Police & Fire: Learn how and when to dial 911; check out a police car and a bicycle; and enjoy a visit from a fire truck.
  • Ambulance: Tour the inside of a Plymouth ambulance.
  • Busing: Take a safety ride on a bus.
  • Playground: Practice safety skills at City Park.
  • Veterinary: Learn how to approach animals.
  • Crossing Guard: Visit with a crossing guard; discuss “Walk” and “Don’t Walk.”
  • Water: Learn about safety around water.
  • Poisons & Electricity: Meet Mr. Yuk and Mr. Ouch.
  • Storm Awareness: Stay safe when the weather turns bad.
