Did You Know?
More children lose their lives each year due to preventable injuries than all childhood diseases combined?
Since 2000, the Safety Council of Greater St. Louis has provided life-saving safety education through its unique Safetyville USA Program. The 1/3 scale town is complete with real sidewalks, crosswalks, streetlights, police, fire and sheriff station, and businesses that can be found in any city.
The goal of the program is to reduce injury and possible death of children resulting from preventable accidents. A trained volunteer tour guide leads children, preschool through third grade, through the town teaching them a variety of safety skills, including fire, bicycle, pedestrian, electrical, stranger danger, and railroad safety.
The children touring Safetyville USA are from all social and economic levels and come from all over Greater St. Louis.
