Continuing with our commitment to pedestrian safety and awareness the Nanaimo RCMP is again partnering with the City of Nanaimo and the Telus Community Ambassadors to host a second pedestrian awareness session. This event is planned for Wednesday December 13, 2017 from 1 pm to 4 pm, at the University Mall located at the intersection of Bruce Ave and Fifth St.
Throughout the afternoon, officers with the Nanaimo RCMP Municipal Traffic Section, Community Policing volunteers and Telus Ambassadors will be handing out reflective armbands to as many pedestrians and cyclists as possible. The officers and volunteers will also take this opportunity to engage and enlighten the public on the need to Be Seen to Stay Safe.
Several weeks ago a similar awareness campaign was held in downtown Nanaimo with over 1000 armbands distributed to the public. The feedback received was overwhelmingly positive and everyone who received an armband was most appreciative of the effort being put forth to keep them safe, said Constable Gary O’Brien of the Nanaimo RCMP.
The Telus Community Ambassadors are comprised of approximately 4500 retired and current employees of Telus from across Canada. These community minded individuals, volunteer their time and energies to various projects within their respective communities, with the primary goal of making each and every community a safer and better place to live.
