Safetown

Completed in September 1991, Safety Town is a summer program designed to acquaint children with safety practices using verbal instruction, reinforced with visual aids and physical application. It consists of a classroom, pond, miniature buildings, streets, sidewalks, and a railroad caboose. Safety Town is a cooperative effort by the Village departments, the Glenside Fire Protection District, businesses and residents, using a minimum of Village funds. 95% of the cost was raised through donations of cash, materials and labor.

Safety Town Classes (Ages 5-7)

Teaching safety awareness to our children when they are young is very important in our efforts to protect these precious lives. The Village of Glendale Heights and Glendale Heights Police Department strives to help by offering safety education for children age 5 to 7 through our Safety Town Classes (child must be 5 years of age by the first day of class).
