St John Ambulance Operation Red Nose 2013
How Operation Red Nose Works
You’ve gone to a house party or your office Christmas party or just out to the bar for a drink and it’s time to go home, but you do not feel comfortable driving.
Call our Headquarters and a team of 3 will come and drive you home safely in your own car. Two people will get in your car with you and the third person will follow behind. Call 683-NOSE (6673).
Your car will be parked in your driveway and you will be escorted to your door. We’ll even drive your babysitter home (as long as one parent comes with us).
This is a FREE* confidential service provided by hundreds of volunteers whose main concern is the safety of our roads. *Those receiving rides may make a voluntary donation to Operation Red Nose.
This service operates on the following dates for 2013
November 29 & 30
December 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 21, 27, & 28
The service is free but donations are gratefully accepted!
