Snow Angels and Sidewalk Clearing: Clips for Media Use

Local media are welcome to use and re-purpose the video files found on the Dropbox linked below to support their own news reporting. Email notice of such use is sincerely appreciated at media.relations@calgary.ca.

Snow Angels

Keeping sidewalks free of ice and snow can be very challenging for older adults and people with limited mobility. The City of Calgary’s Snow Angels Program encourages people to be good neighbours. The program inspires citizens to clear snow and ice from the sidewalks for neighbours who may be less able to do it themselves. Calgarians are encouraged to become a Snow Angel and to recognize others for becoming a Snow Angel at www.calgary.ca/snowangels.

The following A-roll is available for media use:

  • Brenda Delong (citizen), Snow Angel
  • Joan Norman (citizen), Snow Angel nominator
  • Bruce Furlong, Coordinator with Age Friendly Calgary, Community Neighbourhoods

Bylaws related to snow and ice

To keep Calgarians safe during the winter months, owners and occupants of a home are responsible for removing snow and ice from the pathways and sidewalks in the front or to the side of their property within 24 hours after snowfall has ended. More information is available in the attached FAQ and on calgary.ca
