New Albany Safety Town was launched in 2004 with the support of Key Bank and the New Albany Women's Network through the New Albany Community Foundation. Since then, nearly 4,000 children have graduated. The New Albany Chamber of Commerce recognized Safety Town as its Community Program of the Year, and continued support from our sponsors has been integral to the success of this now well-established program.
We are a safety educational camp held each summer for children entering kindergarten or first grade in the upcoming fall school year. All lessons are taught by State Certified Teachers, New Albany Police Officers, and Plain Township Fire Department Firefighters along with teen volunteers, subject matter experts and community partners.
