Grosse Pointe Safety Town


  • Thank you for your interest in the Grosse Pointe Public School Systems Safety Town. Our mission is to equip our youngest learners with the tools they need to remain calm and safe during emergency situations. Your child will meet local police and firefighters, learn tips and tools to use in a real-life fire situation, and explore other safety topics such as how to dial 911, gun safety, body safety awareness, traffic and bicycle rules, the importance of recycling, poison/drug prevention, and rules for water play. This one week, fun-filled program is designed so children are encouraged to keep their surroundings safe through hands on activities and exercises. For more information, feel free to contact us! Limited space available. Enrollment is now open! 
     
    Traffic Safety
    Our Safety Town minature village is designed to resemble a community with buildings, grass, traffic signs and lights. The children take turns riding bicycles while following basic traffic rules. 
     
    Safety Town Fire Safety House
    With the assistance of our local police and fire first responders, the children will practice escape techiques from the Fire Safety House, a two-story, child size house that fills with artificial smoke to simulate an actual fire. You can reinforce these lessons by ensuring that your home has a functioning smoke detector and by creating an escape plan with your child. We thank our police public safety offficers and representatives from community organizations  for their participation in our program.
