Kennesaw makes investment in Cobb Safety Village

The City of Kennesaw and Kennesaw Police Department recently showed their commitment to keeping local children safe by purchasing two electric cars for road safety education at the Cobb Safety Village. A replica of the old railroad depot in Kennesaw will be constructed and used for railroad safety instruction. The depot should be complete and operational in the spring. The Safety Village is a child-size representation of Cobb, complete with trees and scaled-down models of operative buildings with signage, streets, traffic lights and homes. The site has four distinct areas, each presenting the opportunity to teach children how to react when faced with fire, crime and disaster emergencies, as well as drug and alcohol awareness and pedestrian safety.
