It’s no trick!

Am­bu­lance to hand out Hal­loween treats along North Shore

The Compass - - NEWS - BY DANIEL MACEACHERN

Trick-or-treaters along the north shore of Con­cep­tion Bay can ex­pect a visit from an am­bu­lance this Hal­loween.

For the 13th straight year, the North Shore Cen­tral Am­bu­lance Co-Op is hold­ing its “safe treats” event. On Hal­loween night, Satur­day, Oct. 31, the am­bu­lance ser­vice will travel along Route 70, from Job’s Cove to Kingston, hand­ing out treats to kids in their Hal­loween finest.

The event is meant to en­cour­age par­ents to es­cort their chil­dren while trick-or-treat­ing, as well as to pro­mote safe habits that are “eas­ily for­got­ten by chil­dren,” ac­cord­ing to a press release from the am­bu­lance ser­vice.

The release also says if the am­bu­lance needs to re­spond to an emer­gency, an­other ve­hi­cle will take over the treat dis­tri­bu­tion.
