Safety Town is a program designed to teach four and five-year-olds basic safety precautions. Reynolds Memorial has been hosting this annual program for over 30 years. It is sponsored by the hospital for 10 days each summer with a cost of only $25. The materials fee includes:

  • All snacks
  • Classroom materials
  • T-shirt
  • Bicycle helmet

The program is taught by the PR & Marketing Team from RMH, one of whom is a former teacher, a City of Glen Dale police officer, nursing students from the B.M. Spurr School of Practical Nursing and Reynolds Memorial Volunteens (Kids 13-18). Children will meet many community members and learn numerous safety lessons over the course of the program. The children will have the opportunity to spend time with police and firemen to tour their cruisers and fire trucks. They will also have the chance to go through the Fire Safety House and learn how to “get low and go!” out of a fire or smoke filled area.

In addition, they will learn animal safety with guests from the Marshall County Animal Shelter. The Marshall County Schools School Bus Safety Team will stop in for a bus safety lesson and take the children for a ride on the bus to Glen Dale Park for a playground safety lesson! The class will learn Dental Health and healthy eating choices with the Marshall County Health Department and see a HealthNet Helicopter up close. There will be lessons on Stranger Danger, household product safety, and much more!

A graduation ceremony and reception will be held on the last day of class and family and friends are invited to attend!
