The long-standing community project, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Huntsville, continues to teach important safety lessons to local children

HUNTSVILLE, Texas — A group of 40 students from Faith Lutheran School got a firsthand look at traffic and crosswalk safety on Friday, July 14, thanks to the longstanding community project known as Safety Town.

The hands-on learning experience took place at the unique miniature cityscape where children learn to navigate real-world safety scenarios. For nearly two decades, the Rotary Club of Huntsville has sponsored and maintained Safety Town, a testament to the community’s commitment to child safety.

Safety Town is designed to closely mimic a small town, complete with scaled-down streets for tricycle riding and pedestrian children. This immersive, scaled-down environment provides a realistic backdrop where children can learn vital safety practices in a controlled setting.

In addition to crosswalk and bike safety, children at Safety Town also learn kitchen safety, firearm safety, and how to respond to severe weather situations. The saying, “It Takes a Village to Raise a Child,” is exemplified here, as the project wouldn’t be possible without the collaboration of numerous county, city, and state agencies.

Over the years, Safety Town has not only grown bigger and better in Huntsville but has inspired communities across the state to establish similar programs, extending its safety teachings far beyond city limits.

The Rotary Club of Huntsville, beyond its sponsorship of Safety Town, actively volunteers at various school events throughout the year, reflecting its continued dedication to enhancing safety and wellbeing for the city’s youth.
