Safety Village is an exciting program that introduces youngsters to everyday safety concerns and preventative procedures. Children are split into groups according to ages and discuss daily topics that include stranger danger, fire, electric, water, animal and personal safety, and much more. Safety Village features a miniature replica of Northampton complete with streets and sidewalks. Children drive bicycles through the village and walk the sidewalks to learn traffic and pedestrian safety first hand. The Northampton Lions Club came through with much of the financial support to provide this very vital part of the Safety Village Program. Children must be toilet trained in order to participate in the program.
