The City of Montgomery will conduct Safety Village this summer for children, ages 5 and 6. Safety Village is a one-week, summer safety camp where children learn about various aspects of child safety. Safety Village is designed to help children make wise decisions in potentially dangerous situations, as well as how to handle emergencies they may encounter.
Safety Village will be held at Montgomery Elementary in two one-week sessions. The first session is scheduled from June 11 to 15. The second session will be presented from June 18 to 22. Each week offers morning classes from 9:00 a.m. to noon or afternoon classes from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Students will learn basic pedestrian and traffic safety rules, personal safety, animal, water, school bus and fire safety.
The Montgomery Police and Fire Departments coordinate and direct the safety program. Children will be instructed by a Montgomery police officer and a certified teacher, with assistance from junior high, high school and college students. Safety specialists will visit the classes and teach about their respective areas of expertise.
Children who reside in the City of Montgomery may attend free of charge. Children of nonresidents may also attend, but for a fee of $25 each. Payment is due upon registration, with checks made payable to the City of Montgomery.
Registration for Montgomery residents begins April 23 at 8:00 a.m. Open registration begins on April 30, as space permits. Registrations are made online here.
Registrations will also be accepted at the Montgomery City Hall. Mail-in registrations cannot be accepted for this program. In order to allow more children to get through the program, only first-time participants will be allowed to sign up.
