Safety Town
North Clackamas School District Community Services
6031 SE King Rd.
Milwaukie, OR 97222
 
 
Overview
The world can be a very dangerous place for young children. They can get lost, scared, injured and many times, there is no adult around to help. Children who attend Safety Town learn to recognize and respond appropriately to the many hazards and dangerous situations. Under the guidance of district staff, teen and community volunteers, children are introduced to a wide variety of safety concepts. The safety education includes topics about fire, drugs, animals, water, poisons, electricity, railroads, stranger danger, 911 and much more; along with special emphasis on traffic and pedestrian safety.
The school gym is transformed into a small city complete with houses, streets, traffic lights and little cars to peddle through Safety Town. Songs, poems, art projects, movies, guest presenters and a short school bus ride combine to make Safety Town a fun learning experience.
 
 
Volunteering
Teen volunteers, ages 12 and up, are an important part of this program. If you enjoy children and have leadership skills, become a teen volunteer. Please note, the volunteer application deadline is May 15th, 2015.
