Named in honour of Rudolph, the most famous reindeer of all, Operation Red Nose provides rides to drivers and their passengers who feel unfit to drive for any reason — no questions asked — during the holiday season.
If you feel unfit to drive home, you can request a ride through the:
A team of three Operation Red Nose volunteers will help you get home safely: one drives your vehicle, a second navigates and a third volunteer follows in an escort vehicle to pick up the two volunteers once they drop you off.
In Kamloops only, Operation Red Nose will also operate every Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights from December 1–31, except December 24.
The success of Operation Red Nose depends on its volunteers. It's a great way to give back to your community while helping to keep our roads safe over the holidays. For more information on how to volunteer as an individual or part of a team, visit the National Operation Red Nose site.
Donations to Operation Red Nose are gratefully accepted and help fund local youth sports and other not-for-profit organizations.
ICBC has been a proud partner of Operation Red Nose since it began in B.C. in 1996. Supporting Operation Red Nose is a way that ICBC is working to support and protect British Columbians and help them plan ahead to get home safely during the holidays.
