Cobb Safety Village receives funding

The Cobb County Safety Village Foundation has given $34,585 to the Safety Village. This transfer was approved recently by the Cobb County Board of Commissioners.

A grant of $31,000 has been used to buy electric cars, replacement bikes, 50 tablets and radKIDS equipment for instructional purposes. Then $3,585 from rental fees will be used for general maintenance and upkeep of the Safety Village, 1220 Al Bishop Drive, Marietta.

As a 501(c)(3) organization since 2007, the Cobb County Safety Village Foundation oversees fundraising and outreach efforts on behalf of the Safety Village, according to Cobb Public Safety Agency Director Sam Heaton. This unique public-private partnership – with the Cobb County Department of Public Safety and other county and corporate entities – works together to deliver comprehensive fire and fire safety education to all residents within the county, Heaton added.
