What's happening at the Life Safety Park?

What is the Coppell Life Safety Park?

The Coppell Life Safety Park is a joint public education venture between several City of Coppell departments. The Coppell Life Safety Park provides a comprehensive learning environment for children, families, corporate citizens, and the general public regarding overall life safety education programs.

Who can visit the LSP?

​The Life Safety Park is for all Coppell citizens!  We welcome students from public and private schools, homeschools, daycares, as well as Boy Scouts and Girl Scout troops, and other civic organizations.  We welcome public visitation to tour the facility, but due to potential scheduling conflicts, we ask that you call ahead to make arrangements.  We are working to increase and improve our programs so please keep checking our website for program updates and availability.

I heard that the Life Safety Park houses the EOC. What is the EOC?
The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is a central command and control facility responsible for ensuring municipal operations are maintained throughout unforeseen events.  It is specially designed with reinforced construction materials, and equipped with advanced technological audio/video equipment.  In the event of EOC activation, representatives from the public safety, emergency response, and various support agencies within each city department are called in to coordinate and enact the City’s Emergency Operations Plan.  For more information on the Emergency Operations Center and Emergency Management, see the Emergency Management website.

How do I sign up for a class?
We are currently wrapping up our summer programs and are preparing for the fall by coordinating with Coppell ISD, private schools, and homeschool groups to plan their study trips.  CPR/AED classes are offered once a month.  Please register for CPR/AED by clicking here.

Those little jeeps are so cool! Can you tell me about those?
The jeeps are a unique educational tool for our younger visitors. They give our kindergarteners and 1st graders the opportunity to practice their motor vehicle and pedestrian safety skills that they learned in the LSP classroom.  Due to size and weight limitations, the jeeps are limited to our younger visitors.  We welcome our older visitors to continue to practice their pedestrian safety skills on Safety Town.  If you would like your kindergartener or 1st grader to learn and practice motor vehicle safety skills, please sign up for one of our fun and educational summer classes!

Can I just show up for a tour or class without registering?

While we will do our best to accommodate “walk-in” tours, we still encourage you call or contact us ahead of time to make visitation arrangements, as we anticipate full schedules during the year. Please understand that tour times and class sizes may vary and space may be limited.

I see there is a playground on site. Can I bring my child/family in to use it?

The Life Safety Park playground has limited and varying hours, which are dependent upon the class and program schedule.  The playground hours will be updated weekly and are specific to the dates listed.  Due to possible schedule changes, these hours are subject to change without notice.  No LSP staff members will be present on the playground; therefore, children playing on site will require responsible supervision at all times.  Unless listed below, the LSP playground is closed on the weekends, except during special events.  The playground times do not include access to Safety Town.  If you would like a tour of Safety Town, please call ahead to schedule a tour.

Can I have a meeting in one of the classrooms?
All community groups and organizations are welcome to use the classrooms for meetings.  There is no fee to use the facililty, but it is required that all attendees learn a valuable life safety lesson while here.  Meeting space and time is limited.  Please contact us to check availability.

Can I have a birthday party at the LSP?

We are currently working to get an approved policy for birthday parties.  Until we have that policy in place, we are not currently scheduling birthday parties.  Please check back for updated information, or feel free to give us a call.​

Are the firefighters and police officers at the Life Safety Park real-life public service members?

Of course!  All of the firefighters and police officers at the Life Safety Park are volunteering on their off-duty days.  The men and women of our public safety departments enjoy sharing their knowledge of their jobs with visitors, so please be sure to thank them for their service!
