Safety Town Comes Into APS Schools


Safety Town Comes Into APS Schools

The Akron fire and police departments, Akron Children’s Hospital and Akron Public Schools are combining to start a Safety Town program for all kindergartners attending Akron Public Schools. 

Akron Public Schools has 14 elementary schools running this popular program this fall and plans to expand it to all APS elementary schools.  

It is through a grant to Akron Public Schools and the Akron Fire Department from our partners at The Harford that brings the support for fire safety education efforts and programming.  The grant also provides every kindergartner with a bicycle helmet that will be properly fitted.

The Safety Town program will be a one day program set up in the gym of each elementary school. The kids will be split up into sessions. There are a total of 10 sessions (Bike, Electrical, Health/Poison, Pedestrian, K-9, Stranger Danger, Bus and Fire Smoke Safety, along with 911 and Burn Center sessions). Each session will have a short video or presentation followed by a hands-on learning portion. 

Each Safety Town session is about 20-30 minutes long. The entire program will be approximately four to four and a half hours long and will include their regular lunch time.

As soon as we know when Safety Town is scheduled for Robinson kindergartners, we will announce it in our monthly newsletter and send information home.
