Safety Town – Small Size, Big impact.

Safety Towns are small in size but produce big results in child safety

When former police chief Dennis Evers built a small scale railroad
signal for his children’s miniature riding train twenty-five years ago, he never
expected it to turn into a full time business making safety towns, railroad
signals and signals for training that are used around the

Today, Scale Products Company provides everything from a single scale stop sign to its newest addition, “Safety Town on Wheels” - an entire portable
town that fits inside an enclosed trailer. The town features police and fire
departments as well as gas pumps and miniature working traffic and railroad
signals as well.

According to Evers, people buy the railroad signals for their
personal use as well. “We have our scale railroad signals in theme parks,
restaurants, hobby shops and hundreds of private railroads and train rooms in
almost every state”.

“We build a lot of unique products, but my favorites are those that help teach children safety. Our “Safety Town on Wheels” trailer houses
everything necessary to teach a variety of safety lessons
to a wide age range of students, including: traffic, pedestrian, bicycle, school
bus, vehicle and railroad crossing safety, as well as how to  properly use crosswalks, traffic and walk/don’t walk signs. All of our products can be used indoors or outside and can work in a  small gym or a large
parking lot.”

Used by police and fire departments as well as cities, hospitals, schools and service groups, Scale Products Companies safety towns are designed to be easily and quickly set up and taken down, and usually by only two people.

“Law enforcement is about safety, so building safety towns is a fun extension of my previous career.”
