Safety Village

Basic Safety Education Program Overview

Annually in June, Sheriff Deborah K. Burchett’s Community Services Division conducts our Safety Village program in three Clark County areas. Safety Village is a basic safety educational program for Clark County children entering kindergarten (ages 4 to 5).  Safety lessons include: 

  • 911 Safety Village12
  • Personal safety 
  • Railroad crossings 
  • Stranger Awareness
  • Street and safety signs
  • D.A.R.E. concepts                                      
  • Drugs and Poisons 
  • Fire Safety 
  • School Bus Safety 
  • Home safety 
  • Pet/Animal Safety 

These safety awareness lessons are conducted over a 4 day period of 2 hours per day.  A graduation ceremony is held on the last day of the program. 


The Safety Village message is simple: To Keep Themselves Safe.  The children practice and experience situations so they can make the right, safe decision when confronted with real-life dangerous situations. 

 Enrollment & Registration

Enrollment is limited and on a first-come basis. Children must attend the full four days to graduate on Thursday. Children may attend any location, but can only attend one session. There is no charge for attending Safety Village and all handouts are free-including a t-shirt and deputy hat they will wear on the last day of class for a graduation program. We encourage families and friends to attend graduation to see what safety lessons have been learned. 

Please dress your child for inside activity and please no hats or toys that could get lost. It is more important than ever that we provide our children with an in­teractive place where they can learn. Our classes will teach your chil­dren safety lessons that will last a lifetime. 

 The course is free, but it will be the parents’ responsibility to provide transportation. 

Class sizes will be limited to 20 students.
