Photo of the Week: Haunted ambulance brings socially-distanced scares
Greenwich Emergency Medical Service (GEMS) in Connecticut brought tricks and treats to kids in their community who may not be able to go door-to-door this year
Calling all EMS photographers! EMS1 wants to see pictures of you in action or training. Submit a photo — it could be selected as our Photo of the Week! Be sure to include your name, department information and some background on the photo.
This week's Photo of the Week comes from Greenwich Emergency Medical Services (GEMS) in Connecticut, which brought its "haunted ambulance" on a tour around the community to bring treats and terror to community members for Halloween.
For kids who may not be able to go trick-or-treating door-to-door this year due to COVID-19, GEMS came to them instead, handing out nut-free, pre-packaged and wiped down candy for a safe and happy holiday celebration, according to the Greenwich Free Press.
GEMS staff dressed in costume for the occasion, and kids got a hair-raising look inside the rig filled with skeletons, spiders and specters, complete with a fog machine for an eerie atmosphere. The Greenwich Housing Authority made a donation GEMS as thanks for putting on the festive event for its residents.
