Be Safe, Be Seen Initiative

Print Email

Ottawa Fire Services and Safer Roads Ottawa want to ensure that you’re seen while walking, biking, running, or partaking in other activities as a pedestrian at night. We encourage residents to “Be Safe and Be Seen” by everyone on the road simply by stopping at your local fire station where you’ll find free reflective armbands and lights. Any residents can pick-up free bike lights, pedestrian lights, and reflective arm bands until November 8, 2017.

As the season changes, days are getting shorter, meaning there is less light on our roads and pathways. Wearing reflective material or lighting is an easy and practical way to make sure you are seen. Without reflective gear and lighting you’re practically invisible to others on the road throughout the evening and night hours. By wearing a reflective band or light you can be seen up to 150 metres away.

Here's the full list of station locations and the hours in which residents can pick up their items:
