Greater Calumet Chapter Donates to Local Kids’ Safety Organization

On Tuesday, July 7, 2015, ASSE’s Greater Calumet Chapter provided Tri Town Safety Village with funds to upgrade their computer system. Tri Town Safety Village is one of the most popular field trip destinations for North West Indiana school children.

Each year, almost 4,000 students are taught traffic safety, fire safety  and railroad safety by real policemen, firemen and trainmen in a child-sized 5-acre village. Community support for this nonprofit organization allows it to continually increase its curriculum to include food safety, natural gas and electrical safety and pipeline safety. Schools and groups can contact Tri State Safety Village at (219) 865-9600 or visit their website.
