School Districts

Proactive consulting and reactive repairs, we keep your students safe

Playgrounds That Are Both Inspection- and Student-Approved

As a school, your priority is to foster your students’ education while providing an environment of fun learning, which often relies on playground adventures. A school’s playground must be up to date to ensure a safe and accessible experience for the students while safeguarding the school district.

SafetyFirst protects the students and the schools through problem-specific consulting, new playground installation, and annual maintenance checks. SafetyFirst will evaluate or respond to your playground’s issues, such as poor drainage, limited accessibility, or outdated playground surfaces for schools, to uncover the best solution specific to your school’s needs and resources.

SafetyFirst can install the repairs as a Certified Playground Safety Inspector for an immediate turnaround or work with your custodial team to provide the parts and navigate the installation process for inspection. Our school playground equipment and maintenance solutions take into consideration the maintenance required after the updates, including lawn care and playground upkeep, to ensure your playground remains safe for your students, simple for your custodial team, and valuable for your school.

What People Are Saying About Us

I have been using SafetyFirst surfacing material in my district’s playgrounds for several years now. We have been very impressed with the quality and impact attenuation of this product. I would highly recommend it for any organization looking for a quality, long lasting product for their playground surfacing needs.

Facilities and Safety Coordinator
Eden Prairie Schools, ISD 272

In my nearly 30 years of facility management, SafetyFirst is the finest playground service company I have worked with, Bob Clarin, president of SafetyFirst was always available and was on site daily. From the simplest repair, a missing bolt to a complete rebuild including drainage and play structure relocation, SafetyFirst completed the work well and on time.

I would like to express my satisfaction with the wood chips and mats that we have purchased from SafetyFirst. The chips bind together well to make a nice playground surface with the fall protection we need. Bob has always had the materials delivered on a timely basis and is very pleasant to work with. I am sure we will be doing more business Bob and SafetyFirst in the future.
