Free Safety Event for Preschoolers During Spring Break

Press release

Des Moines, Iowa — Wednesday, March 9, 2022 — Spring break just got a whole lot safer in Des Moines. The Des Moines Police Department still has openings for its free March session of the Safety City program for preschoolers.

The hands-on course runs for three days next week and aims to empower children aged 4-5 to stay safe in their homes, neighborhoods and communities. Kids will learn about 911, water safety, fire safety, pedestrian and bike safety and more in a way that suits their learning style.

“You can’t put a price tag on your children’s safety,” said senior Des Moines police officer Deb VanVelzen. “Safety City equips children with the essential knowledge and skills to stay safe in our community so they are equipped to handle potentially dangerous situations before they reach school age.

The Safety City course runs from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. March 15-17 at the Pioneer Columbus Community Center. Lunch will be provided.

Parents can register their children for the event at DSM.city/SafetyCity. Registration is free, but the number of places is limited.
