Canada Day safety tips

The city of Ottawa has posted some safety tips  regarding Canada Day.  Take a look.

Other tips to consider:

–       Leave the alcohol at home.  There will be a zero tolerance for open alcohol at all city run events!

–       If you are taking young children downtown or to local community events take the time to point out “Safe people” who can help them if they get lost (police, paramedics).  As well take the time to talk about what to do if you get separated.

–       A lot of young children do not know their phone numbers or their addresses.  If going to a large community event the parent could write their first name and cell number on a piece of duct tape and stick it to the inside of the child’s shirt (usually at the bottom of the shirt).  If the child is lost the police will now have a means to contact you.

–       If you are separated from your child look in the immediate area and call their name.  If you still can’t find them head to the Missing Kids Tents.  (they are usually set up on Parliament hill, Majors Hill park and across from the Chateau Laurier. (look for these tents when you arrive)

Wishing everyone a Safe and Happy Canada Day!
