Adapting our behaviour on our roads and pathways is just another part of changing seasons. To promote safe travels as the days get shorter, the annual Be Safe Be Seen campaign is back this October.
Whether walking or rolling, wear lights or reflectors to make sure you are seen at night. Without reflective gear you may be practically invisible to other road users.
Throughout October 2023, Ottawa Fire Services will be distributing reflective bands and flashing lights at select fire stations throughout Ottawa. Please note that even within times listed below, should all station personnel be responding to an emergency call, items will be unavailable. Thank you for your understanding.
On October 4, 6, 11, 13, 16, 18, 20, 23, 25, 27, 30 from 4 to 6 pm, stop by Station 42 on Teron Road to pick-up the safety items.
