Special events are an opportunity for Park Patrollers to volunteer outside of their self-scheduled patrols. These events allow volunteers to help in important and unique ways. Each Park Patrol volunteer is encouraged to help with at least one of these "special assignments" during a calendar year. It is important that Park Patrollers are identified with their t-shirt or vest when helping at these activities.
