Regina, SK – Access Communications is excited to announce the safety awareness program Pumpkin Patrol will be hitting the streets on Halloween night for a 27th year. Staff and volunteers from Access will patrol 11 communities across the province.
“Halloween is a special night for family and friends to come together with their kids, share in some fun, and, of course, collect some candy,” said President & CEO of Access Carmela Haines. “Through our pumpkin patrol program, we want to be visible to all the trick-or-treaters. If they see danger and need assistance, our staff and volunteers in our highly visible vehicles will be ready to assist by contacting local law enforcement.”
Pumpkin Patrol volunteers will be in Access Communications vehicles – equipped with a flashing orange light, glow-in-the-dark signage and a direct link to local law enforcement. Volunteers will be driving around neighbourhoods from 6 - 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 31, in the following communities: the Battlefords, Estevan, Martensville, Melville, La Ronge, Air Ronge, Regina, Warman, Weyburn, and Yorkton.
Families that choose to trick or treat are advised to visit www.saskhealthauthority.ca for the most up-to-date recommendations for safely enjoying Halloween.
Access Communications Pumpkin Patrol is sponsored by Harvard Media and delivered thanks to the support of local police and RCMP services and WPD Ambulance Services in North Battleford.
