(HURON COUNTY, ON) - The Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Youth Advisory Council (YAC) EMS "Pulling Event" turned out to be an overwhelming success. This inaugural event was held on June 15, 2018 under sunny skies at the Clinton Raceway. It featured first responder teams battling it out in a good old fashioned "pull off". It was pretty clear, even to the casual onlookers, these first responders needed to dig deep to find their inner strength and determination to get the heavy vehicles moving along.
The five person teams were challenged to see how quickly they could pull a fire truck, ambulance and police cruiser each a distance of 25 metres down the horse track. With the support from a large cheering section of students from Central Huron Secondary School (CHSS) the teams pulled with all of their might and were successful in getting the vehicles to the finish line.
In a closely contested match the combined team from the North Huron and Central Huron Fire Department came out on top with the lowest cumulative time. Huron County Paramedic Services finished second, leaving the two Huron OPP teams in third and fourth place.
The true winner though was the Tanner Steffler Foundation. A total of $914 was donated to the Tanner Steffler Foundation from the proceeds of this event. The Tanner Steffler Foundation remains committed to promoting awareness and creating a culture of change in mental health, addiction and wellness services for youth and families in Huron County.
