The Chautauqua Children’s Safety Education Village is a not-for-profit organization which was formed in 1996. The DFT Communications Educational Facility, where classes are held, is surrounded by a child-sized village, complete with a business district, paved roads, street signs, sidewalks and everything you would find in an actual village. Its purpose is to educate children, primarily in the areas of traffic, bike and fire safety. The goal is to decrease the number of unnecessary injuries and unfortunate fatalities in the community by allowing children to experience hands-on lessons that they will remember.

The Safety Village is sustained through fundraising efforts, grants and donations from a generous community. All donations are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated.
