There is an organization working hard to protect you and your family in your home, at work, even outdoors! Sioux Empire Safety Village, which is located year-round at the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds at 100 North Lyon Boulevard, is that group. They believe that most injuries can be avoided if people learn warning signs and also how to avoid dangerous situations.

Sioux Empire Safety Village works with community leaders, private companies and more to create safety education and training courses with the goal of making our area a safer place to live.

During the Sioux Empire Fair they will have The Power of Fire and The Safe House exhibits, plus two of their Impaired & Distracted Driving Simulators available for people to try. They are real eye-openers, especially for your texting teens to experience! The Children's Safety Fair will have tons of free safety activities for your kids. They'll have fun while they learn.

If you need more information, or would like to volunteer during the Sioux Empire Fair, call 605-334-7233. You can also check out their Facebook page or their website which has tons of information.
