The Coppell Life Safety Park is a joint public education venture between several City of Coppell departments, but is run by the Fire Department. 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. Sample topics covered at Life Safety Park include—but are not limited to—fire safety, traffic safety, pedestrian safety, bike safety, severe weather safety, and home safety.

Life Safety Park is staffed by two full-time fire department employees, who serve as the public safety educators. For certain scheduled classes and events, additional staffing is provided by off-duty firefighters and police officers. Coppell’s Emergency Management Coordinator is also housed out of Life Safety Park, and overseas the onsite Emergency Operations Center.

We welcome students from public and private schools, homeschools, daycares, as well as Boy Scouts and Girl Scout troops, and other civic organizations for scheduled “study trips.” 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.

The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is a central facility responsible for ensuring municipal operations are maintained throughout unforeseen events. The EOC is a location from which local government can provide interagency and interdepartmental coordination and executive decision making in support of incident response and recovery operations. 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.

We are currently coordinating with Coppell ISD, private schools, and homeschool groups to plan their study trips during the fall and spring semesters. Free CPR/AED classes are still offered once a month. Other specialty classes are available and advertised throughout the year. Please click the blue ‘Register Here’ button to be taken to our registration page, where you can also find a current calendar of events.

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. Jeeps are not a part of the tour, and tours do not include a safety lesson. Please understand that tour opportunities may vary and space may be limited.

We also highly recommend that you register for classes online in advance. This ensure that we are able to communicate with you regarding class updates or changes, and will also guarantee that you or your child will receive all the important take-home class materials…the goodies!

All tours, programs, classes and activities at the LSP are FREE to our visitors! The LSP is funded by the City of Coppell’s Recreation Development Corporation (CRDC), under the Bold Vision, Big Impact Campaign.

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 talk to your child's teacher about scheduling a trip for their class to come visit us during the school year; or, you may check back during CISD breaks for public-registration classes.

The Life Safety Park playground is open to the public from sunrise to sunset, accessible through the new gate adjacent to the parking lot. The playground will be closed to the public during classes and private events. As such, playground availability is 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. The playground does not include access to Safety Town. If you would like a tour of Safety Town, please call ahead to schedule a tour.

Any Coppell community group, organization, or business is welcome to use the classrooms for meetings. There is no fee to use the facility, but it is required that all attendees learn a valuable life safety lesson while here, taught by Life Safety Park staff. Meeting space and time is limited. Please visit our 'Meeting Spaces’ page to learn more.

At this time, we are not currently scheduling birthday parties, showers, receptions, or other social functions.

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!
