BRANSON, Mo. — An EMS agency is hoping to make trick-or-treating easier for a 9-year-old with cerebral palsy.

Jimmy Rankin, 9, was nominated by Branson Schools Special Services director Dr. Samantha Henderson, according to a press release from Taney County Ambulance District. Jimmy, who is in fourth grade, says he enjoys school and playing with his twin brother.

On Halloween night, TCAD paramedics will pick up and transport Jimmy to a shopping mall, where he will participate in the 13th annual Safe Street Trick-or-Treat. 

Jimmy will have his own parking area — reserved just for him.
