KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – The Knoxville Area Chapter of Credit Unions has ensured that a credit union will be moving into the Knoxville Police Department's Safety City. Built to teach children the importance of bicycle, pedestrian, passenger and fire safety, Safety City provides "hands-on" traffic and fire education within a child-sized setting. The city is complete with community buildings that the children recognize, paved streets, sidewalks, working traffic signals, railroad crossings, traffic signs, miniature cars and a fire safety house. Students receive classroom instruction and then are taken into the miniature city. Safety City also offers community training classes on bike safety, fire safety and general safety tips throughout the year. "Safety City is an investment in the future of our children and the Knoxville area credit unions want those children to know that we are an important, caring part of their community," said Dottie Davis, KACCU President. The credit union site will be located between the "business district" and the "community area" of Safety City.
