The program is called Partners in Safety and will be available to help children who are out trick or treating Monday evening. Regional Manager for Emergency Services for the Northern Health Region Ken Gurba says when kids are out vehicles from Emergency Medical Services, RCMP and the Fire Department will be there. He explains they go out in their marked emergency vehicles and the staff are wearing their uniforms and they make a visible presence on the streets. He says if any child gets either lost or bullied or has any problems whatsoever they can flag down any of the multiple emergency vehicles that will be cruising the streets on Halloween.
The Partners in Safety Program will run from 4 to 7:30 Monday evening in Northern Health Region Communities.
