EDMOND — A three-day Children's Safety Challenge, sponsored by the Edmond Fire Department, will begin June 16.

Programs will be at the city's new Children's Safety Village. The recently completed village is an educational center for elementary school-aged children. The village is made up of miniature buildings and tiny streets, making a setting where children can learn a variety of ways to be safe.

The programs are designed for children age 4 to 7 and will provide safety education that could save a child's life, officials said.

The Children's Safety Village is on 1.6 acres east of the Cross Timbers fire station, 5300 E Covell Road.

Class times are from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. There will be discussion and hands-on experiences. The last day, children will participate in a safety course challenge where parents are invited to watch.

Enrollment is $20 and includes a T-shirt and snacks. Classes are limited to 50 students.

Children Safety Challenge programs also are being scheduled for July and August. For more information, call 216-7303.
