EMS to Hand Out Goodie Bags, Light Ups

Halloween night, crews with Humboldt General Hospital's Emergency Medical Services Rescue will hand out free goodies to remind area children to have a safe Halloween.

From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, October 31, area youngsters are invited to drop by the ambulance station located adjacent to the hospital to pick up a Halloween goodie bag.

The facility is located at 118 E. Haskell Street.

Additionally, the HGH EMS Rescue ATV will be cruising area neighborhoods, handing out glow sticks.

Crew members also will be on patrol throughout the evening in high traffic trick or treating areas, along with area law enforcement, to make sure that children and parents stay safe.

HGH Administrative Director Pat Songer said it's the least the hospital can do during a time when parents worry about the safety of their children.

He said, "HGH EMS is happy to help make Halloween a safe holiday for area kids."
