Social media has gone nuts in our district! A local farm has planted a crop of sunflowers, and social media has fallen in love with it, sparking hundreds of people to stop and take photos!
Our crews this past evening decided to be part of the internet craze!

Hot off the Presses!
Today, Tri-Community Ambulance received an email from Unyts to summarize the 2016-2017 Holiday Heroes Campaign that just recently ended.
This campaign included support from many local organizations (Fire, Police and EMS). Tri-Community was a proud participant of this event by hosting a Blood Drive, Food Drive and Toy Drive on December 3, 2016. The blood drive supported Unyts.
In all, Unyts reports for the entire campaign the following results:
--Over 500 people presented to donate
--A total of 458 donations were made
--Over 1,300 lives saved in Western New York!
If that wasn't impressive enough, 23 individuals registered to become organ and tissue donors by signing the Donate Life Registry!
TRI-COMMUNITY THANKS EVERYONE FOR DONATING TO OUR EVENT, AND TRI-COMMUNITY IS TRULY PROUD TO HAVE BEEN PART OF THIS EVENT AND PART OF THESE REGIONAL RESULTS!

In exactly one week we will be treated with ghosts, goblins, Supermans, Batmans, Wonderwomans and many other themes wandering our local roads and neighborhoods. Of course, this is one of the days that calories don't count!
To ensure that your families event will be fun, memorable and most importantly safe, we ask that you take the time to review some of the Halloween safety basics and share with your friends! As Benjamin Franklin said "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure".
--Please remember to adhere to your town's defined trick or treat hours! Most towns are posting 4pm-8pm on October 31st! Check your local jurisdiction's website or Facebook.
--Make sure your kids costumes have reflective qualities to them, or have your kids carry glow sticks with them so they can be seen!
--Always check ALL candies and treats PRIOR to consumption by kids and adults. You can never be too safe!
--Always carry a fully charged cell phone with you (in case of emergency, not Selfies!) If you must text or make calls, do so when you are off the road and stationary. You never know when there may be a hole in the ground or uneven terrain!
--Always know your surroundings. Know the street you are on, nearest crossroad, landmark or numerical address. An emergency can strike at anytime.
--Always bring a flashlight with you to illuminate dark areas.
--Make sure your childs costume (and yours!) are properly fitted. Extra material can be a tripping hazard!
--Masks can reduce visibility. Check into alternative options!
And remember, if you have a medical emergency, an accident or injury or your child gets seperated from you, the number for emergencies is 911! Practice this with your kids, as well as them knowing their name, address and their parents phone number should they get seperated from you!
Tri-Community wishes you and your family a happy and safe Halloween week full of fun and memorable events!
