Safety City is a Community Service Project of the Knoxville Police
The objective of Safety City is to provide
an early educational program for elementary school children (kindergarten-fourth
grades). The program will teach children about vehicular, pedestrian,
bicycle and fire safety. The skills taught at Safety City will empower
youngsters with the ability to avoid needless accidents and instill
good safety habits at an early age.
The concept of Safety City is one of providing "hands-on"
safety education within a child-size setting complete with buildings,
paved streets and sidewalks, working traffic signals and traffic
signs. Students receive classroom instruction in basic pedestrian,
vehicular, bicycle and fire safety. Then, students are able to practice
and demonstrate their safety skills in participatory activities on
the Safety City site. Participatory instruction can include pedestrian
exercises, traffic activities through driving child-size vehicls and
bicycle and fire skills.
