SACRAMENTO – A replica of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Northern California has been built in Safetyville USA.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled at 1 p.m. Satuday at the scale version of a town at 3909 Bradshaw Road.
Thousands of kids, preschool through third grade, have received safety education there since its opening in 1984. The children learn about traffic and fire dangers, as well as playground, car seat and bicycle safety. Kids are taught about railroad crossings, traffic signals, strangers, construction sites, electrical dangers, the use of helmets and call boxes, and, in the summer, life vest and fireworks safety.
