From Bison Business:

"Safety Town was established in 1937 by a police officer and a kindergarten teacher after a child was hit by a car and killed walking to school. It started with traffic safety and has expanded to other areas. Our program is offered in partnership with Great Falls Public Schools-Community Enrichment, the National Safety Town Center, and Great Falls Public Schools Foundation."

Safety Town combines fun with safety education for littles entering Kindergarten.  Students at the camp will learn safe practices and emergency preparedness.
