Safety Town

Redirected to the City of Avon Parks and Recreation site

Each year in June, the City of Avon holds a week-long Safety Town for incoming kindergarten students. 

Students learn about safety through one-on-one contact with teachers, volunteers and public safety professionals. A miniature city is used to teach students about street safety, to include pedestrian rules, stop lights and more. Students also learn about safety belts, 911, bus rules and respect for authority. A short graduation ceremony at the end of class allows parents to help  celebrate everything the children have learned.

To learn more about the program or register, please visit the City of Avon Parks and Recreation website.
