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 Look for “Safety Town Registration” under the Events section.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
