Safety Expo makes learning fun

Visitors to our Municipal Building Atrium on March 11 and 12 will notice a bit more activity than usual as we welcome 3,600 students for the 12th annual Safety Expo.

The kids are here to learn about hazards posed by fire, electricity and household poisons. They learn ways to protect themselves from vulnerable situations and how to stay safe online.

They also pick up practical skills like bike and tire repair. And they learn about social responsibility through presentations on anti-bullying and information on ways to positively influence their communities.

Power in partnerships

Safety Expo continues to be a success because of our partners and volunteers. The event is led by the Safety Expo organizing committee made up of City of Calgary and non-City event partners.

Student transportation to and from the event is free courtesy of Enmax. Volunteers share their time before, during and after the event to ensure all students have a safe and enjoyable time while they learn more about safety.
