Candy Cane Campaign - Regional EMS Foundation - Helping Paramedics Save Lives

Regional Candy Cane Campaign

This is one visit the travelling public should be happy to see this holiday season, and if you plan on travelling through the Peace Country Region this December you will be glad you stopped at one.

"Candy cane campaigns are a chance for emergency and protective service agencies throughout the Peace Region to wish the travelling public a safe holiday season, while delivering important safety tips," says JoAnn Cazakoff Paramedic and Public Education Officer for Alberta Health Services EMS.

Emergency Medical Services and their many partners run candy cane campaigns in communities across the region to provide holiday season safety tips such as seat-belt safety, drinking responsibly, slip and fall hazards and fire safety tips. "When drivers are pulled over at the candy cane campaign, instead of being handed a citation, they will be presented with a candy cane along with a few holiday safety tips" said Cazakoff.
