Operation Red Nose in ten Manitoba Communities including Flin Flon will not operate its safe ride service this year. In Flin Flon its run by the Rotary Club with their Committee Chair Ted Hewitt who explains with the current public health situation and the logistics necessary to provide the safety of their volunteers and clients they decided not to offer the service. He says the Rotary Club has enjoyed offering Operation Red Nose for the past 20 plus years providing a free and confidential ride home for their clients noting all proceeds during this time in excess of 200 thousand dollars have been donated to local organizations dedicated to youth and amateur sports. He adds it is their intention to re-visit the public health situation next year and hopefully Operation Red Nose can be safely provided.
Operation Red Nose invites you to always plan for a safe way to get home in all circumstances by calling a friend, a relative, a cab or by designating a sober driver.
