Safer Holiday with PMC and PATS

New Year’s Eve means very different things for different people. For some, it is a chance to enjoy a quiet evening at home; ringing in the New Year with loved ones. For others, New Year’s Eve is a chance for a wild night out on the town filled with champagne and party hats. If you fall into the latter category of people, it’s very important that you remember to make sure you remain safe during your celebrating.

In an effort to invest in the health and safety of our community this New Year’s Eve, Prowers Medical Center is partnering with Prowers Area Transit (PAT) to provide free bus service to any party goers in our community. As a public service, Prowers Medical Center has agreed to underwrite the entire operating cost associated with providing this service on December 31, 2011 between the hours of 7:00 pm and 2:00 am.

The number to call to make arrangements for a ride is 336-8034 and large groups are encouraged to call Prowers Area Transit for reservations prior to December 31, 2011.

Karen Bryant, COO of Prowers Medical Center, presented a check to Danny Glover, Prowers Area Transit operations manager Danny Glover, Tuesday, December 27, to cover the costs of being the Prowers County Designated Driver for the approaching New Year’s Eve.

Over the past several years, PATS drivers have made the rounds around town on New Year’s eve night, transporting riders from local night spots to their homes, usually at no charge to the riders. This year, Prowers Medical Center has contributed almost $500 to the safe-driving/partying plan.

If you must drink – Don’t Drive! Be responsible! Plan ahead! Make sure you have a Safe and Fun New Year’s Eve party.
