Safety Township Press Release
Together we create a safer community. With this mission in mind, the Township of Washington Municipal Alliance is pleased to present a new and engaging program for Township children ages 5 – 6. Safety Township is a program designed to teach awareness and accident prevention skills while introducing the children to their local first responders and Community Helpers. Children will learn from the experts in a fun and interactive way.
Each week the children will be introduced to a new branch of the Township – EMS, Fire Department, Police, and Library. Learning skills like basic first aid, bike safety, safety in a public building, and fire safety the attendees will practice how to prepare and react to emergencies and go home to share their lessons with family and friends. They will be able to tour police vehicles, fire trucks, and ambulances; build a first aid kit; learn bike safety skills; and important lessons like stranger danger. At the end of each class they will go home with an activity book pertaining to that days lesson that they can work on with their family to better personalize and reinforce their safety plans and actions.
Our 2023 classes will be held on Saturdays July 8, 15, 22 & 29 from 9:30am – 10:30am.
