Winter Blast Heading to the D

Once again, we have been invited to assist at the Winter Blast Detroit in downtown in conjunction with Hart Medical, on the weekend of February 7th, 8th, and 9th.

There is something for the whole family so bring your family and friends and enjoy an afternoon patrolling in the “D”. Patrol jacket, snow pants, and heavy boots are recommended as we spend the afternoon or evening outside. There is tons of music in the tents and campfires for s’mores, skating and more.


We also assist at the winter slopes provided this year by Mt. Brighton Ski Resort where first-time skiers/snowboarders are treated to freeskiing. Fun to watch too!
