SAFETY TOWN is an organized safety education program for children entering kindergarten from Oregon and the surrounding communities. Safety awareness is taught and practiced in SAFETY TOWN, a city built to a child’s scale. Teachers, police, and fire personnel, with the assistance of teenage volunteers, will cover topics such as pedestrians, motorists, buses, railroads, water, and various other safetyrelated issues. Movies, songs, games, and practice inside SAFETY TOWN will complement the daily classroom activities. Each session is five days (see below for times). All children must be potty-trained.

The Oregonian Club sponsors SAFETY TOWN in cooperation with the City of Oregon’s Police and Fire Departments and the Oregon City Schools. SAFETY TOWN is at 3230 Starr Avenue (Starr Elementary School) and offers two sessions—a limit of 60 students per session.
