|Description & Services|
|Description (Service)||A place where children ages 4 to 12, regardless of their level of ability or disability learn the fundamentals of safety and awareness. Programs such as fire prevention, smoke alarms, traffic and bicycle safety and internet and social media safety are taught.
Children are encouraged to demonstrate skills they have learned in a miniature town that is complete with sidewalks, roadways, street signs, traffic lights, stop signs and a working railway crossing. The children navigate their way through the village by foot, on bicycles or in small battery powered vehicles.
All activities at the village are supervised by police officers, firefighters and our trained community volunteers. The Children's Safety Village of Brant provides a safe and realistic environment for children to understand and apply the safety lessons they have learned.
The majority of our services are provided through structured group visits. The Safety Village also provides several community events where families can experience the Village.
