  • History

    The Sioux Empire Safety Village began with a discussion 1,300 miles away on the east coast. That discussion at the National Fire Academy led to a visit of the Washington County Children’s Village in Hagerstown, Maryland. The safety center designed to teach injury prevention to children was so impressive, the idea was brought back to Sioux Falls. An organizational plan for our own Safety Village caught fire with numerous community leaders. A Board of Directors was formed in 1998 to oversee the non-profit organization.  Since the creation of the Sioux Empire Safety Village, numerous projects and programs have come to fruition. Sioux Empire Safety Village educates the public about safety and injury prevention on topics ranging from fire, home and farm safety to poison prevention, bicycle and pedestrian safety, and impaired and distracted driving.
