'Safety Town' returns for 4-to-6-year-olds at Boys & Girls Club
COOS BAY, Ore. -- Safety Town is back in the Bay Area this summer.
It's a program that helps kids learn basic safety lessons and gives them a chance to meet people from local agencies.
The Boys & Girls Club of Southwestern Oregon will host Safety Town July 17-21.
The program runs for one week, introducing four- to six-year-olds to basic safety measures.
They'll get to meet and interact with safety professionals in different areas, including the Coos Bay Police Department and the Coast Guard Auxiliary.
The Safety Town program has been held at the Boys & Girls Club for more than 10 years.
"The kids every year come away with great lessons on safety,” says teen programmer Annabel Taylor with Boys & Girls Club. “It's an introduction for kids before they get into school to learn the basics of crossing the street and fire safety, search and rescue safety, different lessons for riding the bus, and what to do when you're around bodies of water."
The program is $15 per child if they’re registered by July 1.
