Colonial Pipeline donates store front at Safety Village

Colonial Pipeline showed its support for safety education in Cobb by recently donating $25,000 to construct a store front in the Safety Village's reduced-scale village. Colonial Pipeline is pleased to become a partner with the Cobb County Safety Village," Sam Whitehead said in a statement. "From my first visit, I saw what a wonderful facility this is and what a great job everyone involved with the village is doing to deliver safety education. Colonial Pipeline Company is an interstate common carrier of petroleum products with offices in the metro Atlanta area. 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.
