O'Fallon Safety Town is a nationally accredited child accident prevention program that introduces safety awareness and preventive procedures to children, ages 4 1/2 through 6 1/2 years old. The program uses a simulated city layout, a classroom facility and an off-campus field trip.
Under the guidance of police officers, a certified teacher, paramedics, firefighters, railroad police and trained volunteers staff, children experience "real life" situations. In accordance with their age and maturity, children are taught to evaluate "safe from unsafe" and how to react safely when confronted with dangerous situations.
Starting in 2016, O'Fallon Kiwanis Club provided a limited number of scholarships to children to allow participation in the program. In addition, money was donated to Safety Town to purchase a new Police Tent to add to their city.
