- ABOUT US
At Frisco Fire Safety Town, we provide a hands-on, fun place where we teach children of all ages how to play it safe everywhere, every day!
What is Safety Town?
We are an educational facility that is part of the Frisco Fire Department. We also serve as a study trip destination for local elementary schools.
During spring and summer breaks, we offer public safety education classes for elementary aged children. Additionally, we offer public tours year-round. Our focus is on "playing it safe, everywhere, everyday!" We teach students and families how to prevent injuries, respond during emergencies and a variety general safety skills - like severe weather awareness, seat belt safety, avoiding home hazards and more. Since opening in January 2007, we have welcomed more than 432,000 visitors to our facility.
How to Visit
Frisco Fire Safety Town offers both scheduled tours and safety education classes. All tours and classes can be scheduled online.
Safety Town Features
Fire Safety Town includes classrooms, an interactive fire engine, and a safety house - which features a realistic living area, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom, where children explore and learn about home hazards, severe weather, and more.
The fun and learning continue outside in our "mini Frisco" with small buildings that resemble local businesses and landmarks. Visitors explore the area on paved roads, complete with street signs, working traffic and crosswalk signals, a railroad crossing and a toll booth.
Many activities are hands-on! Children of all ages enjoy exploring our fire engine that is 'cut down to kid size'. Our Kinder and First grade students practice their motor vehicle safety skills driving battery-operated jeeps throughout the outdoor streets of Safety Town. While our older students ride bicycles after classroom lessons about wearing helmets while cycling.
In our 'After-the-Fire-Theatre', students see a typical family room as it would appear after a fire. The melted blinds and soot-covered walls serve to emphasize the damage done by the fire, smoke, and heat. A video and real-life firefighter use sound and visual effects to lead visitors through an emergency situation, spotlighting possible causes, the 911 call, the extinguishing and investigation.
