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.
