Hocking College Safety Town

Join Hocking Police Department, Athens County Sheriffs Office, fire fighters, educators and other public service workers for a fun course that focuses on teaching children safe practices both at school and home. 

Children ages 4-6 are invited to participate in the program. Participation fee is $10 for the four days. Safety Town is held on Hocking College Nelsonville campus. 

The curriculum includes: bicycle safety, pedestrian safety, fire safety, playground safety, poison control, snake and animal safety, stranger danger and what to do if they find a gun or another weapon. The children are instructed and practice how to cross the street safely. Daily speakers and games lead up to a Thursday graduation ceremony. 

A snack is provided daily. If your child has special dietary restrictions, you may choose to send a snack with your child. The week will be very active, so children should wear comfortable athletic shoes - no flip flops! Also, all children must be potty-trained.

Space is limited, so reserve your spot today! 

You can access the registration form and liability waiver online. You can also register online here. For questions or additional information, contact the Hocking College Police Department at 740.753.6598 or hcpd@hocking.edu

Let's start early to help our children stay safe now and in the future!
