Life Safety Study Trips
We coordinate with DFW-area school districts, homeschools, virtual schools, private schools, and other organizations to schedule free Study Trips. These unique expeditions outside of the traditional classroom give students the opportunity to learn life safety lessons in a specialized, hands-on environment. If you are a teacher and would like to have your students visit Life Safety Park, find more information about registering by clicking the link under your class grade level.
If you are a parent and would like your child to visit Life Safety Park during the school year, please talk to your child's teacher about what Life Safety Park has to offer! Parents are also encouraged to register their children for our free safety classes offered during CISD breaks; check back or view our calendar for a list of all available class opportunities.
