Bring your bikes and helmets for a family bike rodeo at Safetyville featuring helmet fittings, bike safety demos, and fun, family activities to practice bike skills while learning the rules of the road. Then, put your bike skills and knowledge to the test as you ride around Safetyville.

*All cyclists (children and adults) must wear a helmet to ride. Helmets are available at our helmet fit station for those in need*

We are also looking for volunteers to provide assistance in executing our mission of teaching children safety skills while creating an amazing real time experience. Volunteers will be trained on their task so they can assist to the best of their ability.

We hope to see you at this event!

About Safetyville USA

Location:

3909 Bradshaw Road, Sacramento, CA 95827, US

Mission Statement

The goal of the program is to reduce injury and possible death of children resulting from preventable accidents.

Description

The Children's Safety Program provides life-saving safety education through its unique Safetyville USA program. Safetyville USA was opened at the Safety Center in 1984. The 1/3 scale town is complete with real sidewalks, crosswalks, streetlights, a police, fire and sheriff station, and businesses that can be found in any city.

The goal of the program is to reduce injury and possible death of children resulting from preventable accidents. A trained volunteer tour guide leads children, preschool through third grade, through the town teaching them a variety of safety skills, including: fire, bicycle, pedestrian, electrical, stranger danger, and railroad safety. Since the opening of Safetyville USA in 1984, over 125,000 children have benefited from this experience. Approximately 10,000 children tour Safetyville USA each year.

The children touring Safetyville USA are from all social and economic levels and come from all over Northern California.
