WISCONSIN RAPIDS — Once again the Wood County Sheriff’s Office will be participating in the Safe Ride Home Program on New Year’s Eve. Sheriff Thomas Reichert and Tavern League member Dave Hahn started the program in 2007, and Safe Ride has taken place ever since.

Those that need a safe ride home on New Year’s Eve are encouraged to call 715-459-2290. Capt. Shawn Becker of the Wood County Sheriff’s Office and Hahn will be providing rides throughout Wood County. Rides will start at 11 p.m. and run until approximately 3 a.m.
