Access Communications Pumpkin Patrol to hit the streets on Halloween
Thursday, October 27, 2016
The 19th annual Access Communications Pumpkin Patrol is cruising though communities across the province this Halloween.
“Our Pumpkin Patrol volunteers help keep little ghosts and goblins safe on Halloween,” says Tracey Mucha, Communications Officer, Access Communications Co-operative. “We’re proud to partner with local police and RCMP detachments in providing a safe point of contact for children.”
Access volunteers and community partners will cruise through communities from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Monday, October 31. Pumpkin Patrol vehicles are identifiable by orange flashing pumpkin lights and glow-in-the-dark decals.
Pumpkin Patrol operates in eight Saskatchewan communities, including Regina, Weyburn, Estevan, North Battleford, Yorkton, Humboldt, Melfort and La Ronge. In case of an incident, Access vehicles are equipped with a direct link to the local police or RCMP dispatch in the local area.
Access Communications works with community partners, including the Regina Police Service, Weyburn Police Service, Estevan Police Service, AECOM Technologies, the Regina Pats, Canadian Digital Network, WPD Ambulance Services, Regina Citizens on Patrol, Harvard Broadcasting, Victoria Square and Northgate Malls in Regina, and the Saskatchewan Abilities Council.
