About Safety Village
Kettering Safety Village is a week-long program sponsored by the Dor-Wood Optimist Club. The City of Kettering’s Safety Section in collaboration with Kettering City Schools is proud to operate this program. The program is designed to teach our youngest citizens how to be safe.
Safety Village instructors are joined by Kettering police, fire and school personnel to provide age-appropriate classroom instruction on a variety of safety topics to participants. Children get to practice and reinforce what they’ve learned at our indoor Safety Village, with child-size replicas of streets, intersections and buildings. Children also participate in a variety of additional activities, including a “Safe Walk” in a neighborhood. Through classroom instruction and fun and exciting hands-on experience, young children will begin to develop safe habits for a lifetime.
