When crises like the one unfolding in Ukraine occur on the world stage, it’s hard to know what (and how much) to tell our kids. Whether or not we mean to, adults can contribute to anxiety and fear in children by their words, actions and reactions.
Halloween should be spooky – not scary! The Calgary Partners for Safety have been patrolling the streets on Halloween night for over 25 years to keep young Calgarians safe while they trick-or-treat, and this year is no exception. From 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 31, hundreds of vehicles will be on Calgary’s streets providing high-visibility assistance to families who decide to trick-or-treat this year.
With the return of warmer weather, The City of Calgary Emergency Medical Services would like to remind parents of an often overlooked hazard in the home. To bring fresh air into your house, or to cool off in hot weather, we naturally think of opening a window.

If you get stranded during the summer, you can just hang out in shorts and a tank top until help arrives—but that’s not the case during the winter. When the snow flies, you need to be sure you’re prepared for the worst-case scenario: being stuck outside in sub-zero temperatures.

Empowering children with the knowledge of how to prepare and take action during an emergency or disaster is the best way to keep them safe.
