Prov. Fire Fighters Offering Free Rides Home on New Year’s Eve
Thursday, December 31, 2015
This is the second year in a row that the fire fighters are doing this but is the first year under the safe night program.
“We are sworn to keep city residents safe, and take that oath very seriously. We are launching Safe Night in an effort to cut down on the number of potential drunk driving accidents by offering free rides from Providence bars and restaurants to residents who may not be able to make it home safely on their own," said Paul Doughty, President of Providence Fire Fighters IAFF Local 799.
Rides will only be offered from Providence bars and restaurants to private residences within the city limits. A limited number of off-duty Providence Fire Fighters will be available to field calls and offer rides, delays can be expected.
For rides home, citizens should call 401-272-7999
