Safety First for SCV Kids
Kid injuries involving falls, motor vehicles, pedestrians, bicycles, fire, poisoning, animal bites, earthquakes and drownings are preventable. Yet in four years, more than 2,500 injuries to children ages 4 to 6 years living in the SCV were reported. At Safety Town - Santa Clarita, young children learn about safety topics and related skills in a fun, interactive environment. They practice pedestrian and vehicle safety skills in a child-size town with buildings, streets, sidewalks, signal and safety signs where they drive pedal cars complete with safety belts. Each day, community safety professionals give safety and injury prevention demonstrations on emergency preparedness, fire prevention, stranger danger and personal safety, water/playground/bicycle/animal safety and more.
