Halloween Safety tips

PD Halloween 2018 Text.jpg

Halloween, October 31, 2018, falls on a Wednesday 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. Have a designated meeting place in case your group gets separated.

Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see and for others to see you. Wear reflective clothing while walking in dark areas.

If you are driving through a neighborhood, drive slowly and watch for kids. Sometimes they get distracted and might cross the road without looking.

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.

If you see a house with the lights out and no Halloween decorations, chances are they may not participate in Halloween activities. Please respect their homes and wishes.

Parents if you see any suspicious activity, please contact the police immediately at 361-886-2600. If it is an emergency call 911.

Be courteous to others, be aware of your surroundings and make this Halloween fun and safe for everyone.

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.
