Trick or whistle, York Region Emergency Medical Services helps keep children safe this Halloween

These highly visible "treats" will be distributed to parents and children throughout the day and into the evening.
The media is invited to attend one of the many distribution locations:
WHEN: Monday, October 31st - 6:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
WHERE: St. Paul's Catholic School, 140 William Roe Blvd., Newmarket
