City spotlights safety at 11th annual expo

The City of Calgary kicked off its 11th Annual Safety Expo for students in Grades 4-7 to learn about safe practices at home, school and play.

More than 3,300 students will explore interactive displays from 40 participating exhibitors over a two-day period in the Municipal Building's Atrium. They'll also have the opportunity to engage in workshops designed to educate kids about safe and responsible decision-making when faced with different scenarios like toxic chemicals, nature trips, internet usage, and bullying.


Among many of today's special guests were Mayor Naheed Nenshi; Councillor Diane Colley-Urquhart, Honourary Chair of Safety Expo Committee; Hawk, Calgary Police Service's trauma dog; and Honey, Calgary Fire Department’s Accelerant Detection dog.

The planning and hosting of Safety Expo is a collaborative effort on behalf of the following organizations. We thank them and their representatives for their hard work:
The City of Calgary's Safety Expo is not a public event however visitors to the Municipal Building are welcome to browse the exhibits.
