Beginning at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, April 3, residents will be able to enroll children in O’Fallon Safety Town online or in person at the Renaud Spirit Center, 2650 Tri Sports Circle, O’Fallon, Missouri 63368.
O’Fallon Safety Town is a nationally-accredited accident prevention program designed to instill safety awareness and safe procedures in children ages 4 ½ through 6 ½. Under the guidance of police officers, a certified teacher, paramedics, firefighters, railroad police and trained volunteer staff, children will experience “real life” situations, learn how to decide if a situation is safe or unsafe, and how to respond safely. The program uses a simulated city layout, a classroom facility and an off-campus field trip to teach children how to stay safe.
Three sessions will be offered, with each session lasting two weeks, Monday through Friday. The dates are: June 3-14, June 17-28, and July 8-19. Choose morning classes, 9-11:30 a.m., or afternoon classes, 12:30-3 p.m. Children must be at least 4 ½ but not older than 6 ½ on the start date of the program. Safety Town sessions will be held at Emge Elementary School, 250 Fallon Parkway, O’Fallon, Missouri 63368. O’Fallon Safety Town is sponsored by the O’Fallon Police Department and VFW Post 5077 and the Ladies’ Auxiliary. www.ofallon.mo.us/PD/SafetyTown
The cost for the program is $60 per child and $40 for each additional child from the same family. Fees must be paid in full when children are enrolled. Space is limited, so early enrollment is encouraged. Only parents or legal guardians may enroll their children.
