Safety Town

Safety Town is a one week summer program designed to acquaint children with safety practices using verbal instruction, reinforced with visual aids and physical application. It consists of a classroom, pond, miniature buildings, streets, sidewalks, and a railroad caboose. Safety Town is a cooperative effort by the Village departments, the Glenside Fire Protection District, businesses and residents, using a minimum of Village funds. 95% of the cost was raised through donations of cash, materials and labor.

For more information or questions please contact Tanya Macko, Police Program Supervisor for the Police Department, at 630.909.5459 or Tanya Macko
