To help remind you of the risks when you’re out on Calgary’s rivers and lakes, the Calgary Fire Department has teamed up with the Calgary Police Service and Community Standards to form Partners in Water Safety.

Our message to all citizens is simple: where there’s water, there’s risk. Accidents can happen even when you do everything right.
When you’re out enjoying Calgary’s rivers and lakes, remember to:

• Wear a lifejacket.
• Scout, assess and decide.
• Keep kids safe around water.
• Learn to swim.
• Behave on the water.
• Bring the right supplies.
• Call 9-1-1 if there is an emergency on the water. 

 To help everyone reduce their risk while enjoying their time on the water, you can read more about water Safety here.​​
