This Halloween REMSA Health is offering a special opportunity for a child with complex medical needs in our community to participate in a Trick-or-Treat Transport. REMSA Health will facilitate a paramedic crew and transportation for a child on Tuesday, October 31,2023.
A REMSA Health ambulance will pick up the child that has been selected along with their family at their current residence (or care facility). Then, the crew will escort the child around their neighborhood or a pre-selected neighborhood. The paramedics will transport the child on a stretcher so they have the opportunity to trick or treat and have a full bag candy.
The date of the event/transport is Tuesday, October 31, 2023 (Halloween) between 5 and 8 p.m.
Transport participants and parents or legal guardians must reside in REMSA Health’s primary service areas of Reno-Sparks-Washoe County.
Children in a hospital or other medical facility are eligible. REMSA Health will coordinate with the facility, if necessary.
The child should be between the ages of 5 and 15 years old.
Participants and friends/family should be willing to share their experience with media partners and sign a protected health information and photo release form.
REMSA Health retains the sole right to make the final determination of clinical appropriateness for participation.
Participants will be randomly selected and finalized based on medical appropriateness.
Participants and friends/family should be willing to share their experience with media partners and on REMSA Health’s social media and sign a protected health information and photo release form.
The nomination deadline is now closed.
