Media Advisory - The Rogers Pumpkin Patrol keeps streets safe and kids informed about the importance of Halloween safety

    TORONTO, Oct. 9 /CNW/ -WHAT:     The 23rd Annual Rogers Pumpkin Patrol program aims to educate
              parents and their children about the importance of Halloween
              safety. During the month of October, local police and Rogers
              employee volunteers team up to visit grade two and three
              classes in schools throughout the GTA. In addition to learning
              important safety tips from the volunteers and the police,
              students receive loot packs containing a reflective armband and
              a safety tip flyer to take with them on the big night. Parents
              and their children can feel at ease for another year knowing
              that Halloween school safety sessions will continue and red
              Rogers vans are ready to patrol neighbourhoods on Halloween for
              the 23rd year.
