Cobb County Safety Village, built on a 8 acre site, is the most comprehensive safety training environment in the region where our residents and business community gain knowledge through hands on experiences....a place where the walls come alive with knowledge while instructors share the most advanced techniques and ideas for making our community safer. Local organizations are invited to construct reduced-scale buildings at a limited number of sites in the safety village. These life like streets include sidewalks, traffic signals and a variety of structures that represent our community. These structures will become an integral part of the learning experience.
