Halloween is this Saturday Night. We hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable day. Here are a few tips that hopefully will make your night a little safer.
Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult.
Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see and others see you.
Always WALK and don’t run from house to house. Look both ways before crossing the street. and use crosswalks when possible.
Walk on sidewalks whenever possible, or on the far edge of the road facing traffic to stay safe.
Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips, and falls.
Enter homes only if you’re with a trusted adult. Only visit well-lit houses. Don’t stop at dark houses. Never accept rides from strangers.
As for those who would rather plays tricks than receive treats, remember that damaging a person’s property can be considered “Criminal Mischief”. Don’t ruin your night by having to meet a Police Officer. The costume they are wearing is real and so are the consequences.
