2019 Summer Programs
Programs include interactive learning and bike time in the village. We have a fleet of children's bikes, some with training wheels. You may not bring your own bike to Safety Town.
All children are required to be accompanied by an adult when visiting Safety Town for programs, tours and events. All safety programs are conducted by a Frisco firefighter or safety educator.

We offer a more interactive learning experience with most of our public programs. Children may spend time doing one or more of these activities: exploring the fire engine, visiting our safety house, watching a video in our After the Fire Theatre and bike ride time in the village.
Severe Weather Safety
Children will learn safety tips for severe weather safety; Students will learn difference between a severe weather watch and a warning, and what to do in a severe weather situation. While watching a simulated tornado occurring during severe weather, they will practice seeking shelter.
Students will learn the importance of helmets, for both children and adults, while riding wheeled vehicles, and about the proper hand signals to use while riding a bicycle on roads.
Children will learn what to do if a fire occurs in their home. The importance of an exit plan will be discussed, and students will practice escaping from a bedroom window.
Children will learn the importance of staying hydrated, how to recognize a concussion and how to prevent an overuse injury.
Children will learn how to recognize and use pedestrian crosswalks and intersections in the village. They will practice crossing the streets, assess hazardous situations and how to handle them and identify traffic signs and signals.
Basic First Aid
Children will learn basic methods of applying first aid from insect bites to burn care. Basic items included in a first aid kit are also discussed. Children will acquire skills to use in most minor emergencies.
Children 10-13 years old can participate in this 1.5 hour program. Students will learn how to properly handle an infant and small child, types of safe play for children and basic safety measures needed to serve as a responsible babysitter. The class does not provide certification. (This is our only 'independent' class, but an adult must check in and check out with each student.)
Is your child too young for a program? We do offer educational walking tours for all age groups; It includes a half-hour walking tour of the facility and mini-town, including a visit to the interactive fire engine and safety house. Younger visitors who take a 'walk around' Safety Town can practice their pedestrian skills and crosswalk safety in our mini-town. (No jeep or bike rides are included as part of the Safe and Sound Walk Around.) Tours are open to any age and must be scheduled by phone at 972-292-6350. Please call at least one day in advance to check on availability. Please visit our Tours page for more details about the current tour schedule.
