Courtenay St. John Ambulance hosts Halloween Haunted House

Join St. John Ambulance cadets Saturday, Oct. 28 for a Halloween Haunted House for the entire community.

The second annual Halloween Haunted House is a family-friendly event, designed to be fun for all ages. It is created by St. John Ambulance Cadets, aged 10 to 18 years old, and adult volunteers.

“Last year’s haunted house was a lot of fun for all the participants,” said Rob Carlson, a St. John Ambulance volunteer. “A lot of work has gone into making this year another huge success.”

He encourages participants to meet volunteers, participate in games or be brave and experience how medical first responder volunteers transform the St. John Ambulance offices into a scary sensory Halloween maze.

The event runs from 5-9 p.m. at the St. John Ambulance offices at 84 -1742 Cliffe Ave., directly across from the Old House Hotel in Courtenay.

Donations will be accepted for the A.J. Taylor Memorial First Aid Competition – a locally hosted, first aid competition that helps youth from across Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland hone their first aid skills each spring.

St. John Ambulance is an international charitable humanitarian organization that builds on a 900-year tradition of caring and saving lives. As the Safety Partner for every resident in B.C. and Yukon, St. John Ambulance ensures people have the safety, education and tools (SET) at work, home and play. Proceeds from training and products support volunteer-based charitable community programs.

In the Comox Valley, those programs provide opportunities for youth to learn first aid and volunteer through its youth cadet brigade, therapy dog services and trained first aid volunteers and services at many community, sporting and recreational events every year.

For more information on the St. John Ambulance programs and services, call 250-897-1098, or visit the Halloween Haunted House.
