Thank you so much for such an excellent, fun, and informative week for my daughter! She had an amazing time and learned so many valuable life skills. I feel much more confident that she will be prepared for emergencies thanks to what she learned at Safety Town.

Great Program! Relatives from other area with young children are jealous their counties do not offer anything comparable!

Staff and Volunteers did an excellent job at making my daughter feel comfortable about being dropped off. She was excited each day to share with us what she did and learned.

$25 is a steal for what you get - I appreciate all the sponsors so much, love the helmet - and backpack, love the simulated fire and safety house - great learning experience for kids and adults.

I really enjoyed the parent packets. It allowed me to engage with my son at dinner about his day at Safety Town. I can not say enough about the leader and her helper. I felt they were friendly and interacted very well with children.

I just thought I'd let you know...my son is now a 1st grader at Dare and he STILL talks about how much he learned at (and liked) Safety Town (summer 2010). What a fantastic way to ensure children not only hear safety messages, but they have the opportunity to apply those messages. That application sticks with children much longer than what they heard. The trailer that simulated a fire, the firefighter in full gear (don't be afraid), the bike area...all of these offerings helped "cement" what should be done in various situations.

We now have a smoke alarm in every room, we've practiced fire drills, we continue to discuss and practice personal safety, thanks to our own little safety patrol. An added benefit is that we get little to no resistance on the bike helmet and safety gear for all items (scooter, skateboard, etc.). All I have to say is, "does it have wheels?" and Connor complies. Again, a huge thank you to all who make this program possible. If you ever wondered if it has a lasting effect, rest assured that it does. Thank you for such a wonderful program! - Jen

The Safety Town Staff and Volunteers are awesome. I love Annetta's energy and her reassurance for the parents at the beginning of the week is comforting for me as a parent. I got the impression that the teen volunteers really want to be here. Keep up the good work teens! - Susan

Thanks so much for offering this program my nephew attended two years ago and loved it. My son loved it as well. I look forward to bringing my other son next year and in two years my daughter! Staff was very friendly and worked extremely well with the kids - very welcoming each morning. - Sherry

My five year old son attended Safety Town in August at Magruder Elementary. He loved it and still talks about it. A few days ago we were cooking dinner. One of the burners on the stove was too hot and when my husband poured oil in the pan it started smoking, thus setting off our smoke alarm. As we were moving the pan off of the burner and opening the back door to let the smoke out, we heard the front door open and close. My husband went to see what it was - our son had evacuated the house! He was standing between our front yard and our neighbors trying to decide what to do. We have talked to him about next time asking the neighbor to call 911, but how impressed were we at his response! He didn't hesitate, but reacted as if it was second nature to get out when he heard the smoke alarm. We talk to him about safety, but Safety Town was a huge impact on him. Thank you so much for keeping children safe with this fantastic program! - Leigh
