Operation Red Nose Needs Volunteers for 2015

What is Operation Red Nose?
Operation Red Nose is an educational campaign and a free service for you, your co-workers, friends and family which provides a safe alternative to drinking and driving. The service is provided free of charge, however, donations are very much appreciated and gratefully received. Operation Red Nose is a confidential service, and is available to any person operating a motor vehicle who does not wish to drive their car for any reason. A person does not have to be drinking to use this service. However, Operation Red Nose is NOT a taxi service. It is only available to people AND their vehicles to the destination of their choice within each service area.

Operation Red Nose Nanaimo is now in its 18th year helping to create safer communities by providing an alternative to drinking and driving during the holiday season. Proceeds from this event will support local athletes and youth through programs and services such as the Don Long Bursary, XploreSportZ, Active Star and PacificSport Youth Leadership.
How can you help?
In 2012, nearly 300 volunteers were able to get over 1,500 people home safely over the campaign which provided 11 operational evening from late November through New Year’s Eve night. Operation Red Nose could not happen without our dedicated volunteers and the numbers indicate that there is a need for this service in our community. The larger numbers of Red Nose volunteers means that we can ensure we get even more of our neighbours home this year.

We are seeking volunteers for various positions and for all operational evenings. Please visit our Become a Volunteer Page for more information and to join us today.

We also look for support from local businesses. Together we can make a difference. Visit our Become a Corporate Sponsor Page for more information.

Or please contact our Operation Red Nose Coordinator, Ursula Weiss at or 250-740-6572 .

What areas does Operation Red Nose Nanaimo Service?
Operation Red Nose Nanaimo operates from Lantzville in the north to Ladysmith in the south.
