General

  • Mission:
  • The mission of the Chatham-Kent Children’s Safety Village is create a safety minded, healthy community by reducing preventable injuries and deaths through specialized programming and camps.

  • Overview:
  • The Safety Village was built on the need to raise our children in an environment of safety concentrating on preventable injuries and health issues.

    Using the tried and true three step method of “Tell Me, Show Me, Involve Me” teaching module, the Safety Village partners with local Police, Fire, Paramedics, Utility Companies, Farm Professionals, Conservation Authorities and Health Professionals to provide valuable life saving programming to local children.

    Programs are taught to local children & youth who are most at risk for PREVENTABLE deaths, injuries and disabilities specific to Chatham-Kent.

  • The Chatham-Kent Children’s Safety Village was built in 2005 and opened for school programs and community events in October of 2006.It has been recognized around the world for its Safety endeavours and visited by Japan, New York and currently working with Australia. Good Morning Chicago, a school in Cincinnati and another Gr. 6 class in New York all have credited the Chatham-Kent Children's Safety Village for sharing the life saving programs and information around the world in injury prevention.

    2016 marks a new venture for the Chatham-Kent Children’s Safety Village expanding programs to include:
