Maple Ridge Fire Department and Pitt Meadows Fire Rescue, in partnership with our local McDonald's restaurants in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, began the Summer Safety Smart Card program in 2001. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Community Policing Team is joining us again in distributing Summer Safety Smart Cards to deserving individuals.
People spend much more time outdoors during the summer months and unfortunately this is when many preventable injuries occur. The aim of this program is to reward people who are enjoying the outdoors in a safe manner and to promote injury prevention in the community. Fire officials and Community Policing Team members will reward youths for such things as wearing a helmet when cycling, wearing protective gear on skateboards/rollerblades, using crosswalks properly, etc.
Redeeming Your Cards
Summer Safety Smart Cards can be redeemed at any Maple Ridge or Pitt Meadows McDonald's location for a free ice cream cone until the end of September.
