The Tri Town Safety Village represents Dyer, Schererville & St John. This is an actual child-sized town that includes replicas of local businesses, a full size Survive Alive house and real railroad and street crossing areas complete with working train crossing and stop light equipment. Four acres at 1350 Eagle Ridge Drive in Schererville is the ideal location for the village. Just West of the Schererville BMW dealer & next to AMC 12.
Upon arrival, you will be greeted by our administration building and this will be the start to a fascinating visit for you and your children. Many years of study, design and testing, by many dedicated professionals in the field of law enforcement, fire safety, water safety, architecture and construction, resulted in a working model city in which children can learn and have fun at the same time in the Safety Village.
Tri-Town Safety Village is currently seeking funding for the building of a Veteran’s Museum on the property of Safety Village. The cost to build the Veteran’s Museum has been estimated to be about $46,000.
This building will house a wide array of war artifacts and pay tribute to veterans. The museum will be a learning center where visitors can learn about the many sacrifices made by veterans. Additionally, the museum will provide each visitor with an in-depth look athow soldier’s lived during wartime. Our objective is to promote patriotism, unity, and to leave each visitor with a lasting appreciation towards veterans and the sacrifices they’ve made.
The Carpenter’s Union and various other local unions to help keep the cost low are donating all labor. We also have the support of many veteran organizations including Military Order of the Purple Heart. This organization has agreed to house their removable memorial wall inside the Veteran’s Museum for all visitors to see.
The Military Order of the Purple Heart wall contains the names and pictures of everyone who has received the Purple Heart Medal. The purpose of their memorial is to pay tribute to all military personnel who have received the Purple Heart Medal. Their memorial wall is inspiring and truly pays tribute to this special group of veterans in a significant way.
Safety Village wants this museum to be a community-spirited collaboration. If this project is something you would like to be a part of please donate now. In fact, our recent Veterans 5K/10K Walk/Run in May 2015 raised close to $5,000 for the Veterans’Museum.Donate Learn More
