VIDEO: After the pandemic canceled it last year, 'Safety City' made a comeback this year!
Cedar Falls Public Safety partnering with the Target Distribution Center, 'Safety City' is an event that teaches kindergarteners safety skills in case they're in an emergency. Hosted annually since 1968, Cedar Falls emergency personnel set up six stations for students to rotate through.
Each station made its own presentations. For example; Cedar Falls Police brought a police cruiser for students to look inside, Cedar Falls Fire & Rescue allowed kids to spray the hose, Cedar Falls Utilities demonstrated getting electrocuted with a hot dog, and so much more.
Knowing kids learn the best through hands-on experiences, Lieutenant Kari Rea says this is a great opportunity to learn that even at five years old, you can still help a dangerous situation.
