Operation Red Nose will have volunteers working New Year's Eve in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows.

Celebrate safely, say RCMP

Make sure to arrange a safe ride home.

Party on and celebrate the new year Thursday night, but do so safely, say Ridge Meadows RCMP.

They advise people to plan a safe ride home from their celebrations.

Operation Red Nose, the free ride pick-up service, will be operating at full steam on New Year’s and will get you and your vehicle home safely with just a phone call.

“Whatever your New Year’s Eve plan is, plan on being safe,” Cpl. Alanna Dunlop said.

“We want everyone to enjoy the holidays, so make sure you plan ahead for a safe ride home,” added Kate Woochuk, local ICBC road safety coordinator.

“Take your turn as the designated driver, call a taxi, take transit or use Operation Red Nose. “We all need to do our part to make sure friends and family get home safely.”

Police have added on extra staff for the evening to cope with the expected increase in calls.

Operation Red Nose: 604-515-NOSE (6673).
