Safety program for children planned in Penn Township
Youngsters can learn about basic safety measures, tips and awareness lessons that promote personal and community safety during a Safety Township program next month in Penn Township.
The program, taught by police, firefighters and other emergency responders, will be held from 9 to 11:30 a.m. June 17-21 at the Level Green Presbyterian Church, 105 Olive Drive, Penn Township.
Registrations are being taken until May 31 for the annual program sponsored by the Community Women’s Club of Level Green. Children who are entering kindergarten for the 2019-2020 school year are eligible to attend.
Key topics include fire safety, school bus safety, poison awareness, stranger danger as well as bike and scooter safety. Children will also learn about street safety by having an opportunity to drive a big wheel or bike, with training wheels, through Safety Town. Personal bike helmets are required.
Representatives from the Penn Township police, Penn Township Ambulance, Level Green fire department, First Student, Inc. and local hospital personnel will offer information and provide demonstrations.
The cost of the program is $50, with discounts for families with more than one child participating.
Space is limited and registrations are taken on a first come, first served basis.
A form with complete information and details is available online at levelgreenwomensclub.org. Look for “Safety Town Registration” under the Events section.
