Medstar, Michigan’s largest EMS and mobile healthcare provider, is seeking some ghouls & boys, witches & warlocks who may need a hand trick-or-treating. This is an opportunity for a few local kids in our service areas to enjoy Halloween when they might not have otherwise been able to.

This program is designed for kids who can trick-or-treat but usually wouldn’t be able to due to medical restrictions. The child will be picked up from their home (or medical facility) in a fully decorated, spooktacular ambulance. The child and their family will be escorted through a predetermined neighborhood on a stretcher, with full medical support, until their hearts are content and their candy bag is filled.

To nominate a child for this event, please fill out the form below or email The nomination deadline is due by October 18.
