Calgary Safety Expo

School Registration is now closedThank you to all the teachers who have applied on behalf of their class to attend Safety Expo 2014. We have received an overwhelming number of appplications so won’t be in touch until Wednesday, December 11th. We have thank you for your great interest and enthusiasm.

Safety Expo is Calgary’s premier event aimed at teaching students about hazardous situations at home, school and play.  The Expo consists of interactive displays, workshops and an education corner designed to engage students and educate them about making responsible decisions regarding their personal safety.  All activities are designed to have connections to Alberta Education curriculum outcomes, as well as promote responsible behaviour in the community.

ENMAX Corp provides free bussing for pre-registered Calgary schools, and admission for the event is free.  Six different workshops will be offered this year. Students will have the opportunity to visit over 30 exhibits and tour the YouthLink Calgary – Police Interpretive Centre. Possible workshop topics for this year include:  emergency preparedness, making smart life choices, fire safety and helmet safety.  Last year’s Expo welcomed over 3100 students.
