Ottawa Fire Services, in partnership with Safer Roads Ottawa and the Ottawa Police Service will launch the fifth annual “Be Safe, Be Seen” project for the month of October.
As part of the initiative, residents are encouraged to drop by any Ottawa Fire Station to receive a complimentary light or reflective item. Each resident will be able to choose one item from the following list: a set of bike lights, a reflective armband/leg band or a pedestrian light. The safety items will help make road users more visible at night while walking, biking, running or partaking in other activities.
For community groups looking for safety items, we encourage you to send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those wishing to pick-up an item from the Stittsville Fire Halls, these are their locations and the information you require:
- Station 46 located at 34 Iber Road – 8:00am–8:00pm when firefighters are present; and
- Station 81 located at 1643 Main Street – Call the Fire Officer at 613-836-3337 during business hours to ensure staff is available or items in stock.
The Safer Roads Ottawa Program is a leading community partnership between Ottawa Fire Services, Ottawa Paramedic Service, Ottawa Police Service, Ottawa Public Health and the Transportation Services Department committed to preventing or eliminating road deaths and serious injuries for all people in the City of Ottawa, through culture change, community engagement, and development of a sustainable safe transportation environment.
When you walk, run, bike and roll — Be Safe, Be Seen!
