Calgary-based Blackline Safety Corp. has donated 35 of its  G7c wearable safety devices to the Calgary Stampede.

Blackline says they will be installed in the Stampede’s fleet of courtesy cars used to drop off and pick up special guests such as entertainers, dignitaries, rodeo competitors, sponsors and the Stampede Board.

The all-in-one safety devices are equipped with location technology, integrated cellular connectivity and two-way communication via push-to-talk that allows the devices to be used like a walkie-talkie.

Blackline Safety believes its connected technology will help the Courtesy Car Committee manage their fleet in real-time and ensure safety and efficiency in the mapping, monitoring and dispatching of vehicles. The devices will also be worn by drivers when they leave the vehicles to add an additional layer of safety.


“Blackline is delighted to supply our technology – configured to the specific safety and location management needs of the Stampede – and provide unmatched protection and efficiency to support the event and its volunteer Courtesy Car drivers,” said Christine Gillies, chief marketing officer, Blackline Safety, in a statement.
