Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween is around the corner. In addition to lots of treats, there are always a few tricks to be aware of, so here are some safety tips for the big night:

  • Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks. Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross
  • Put electronic devices down, keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street.
  • Always walk on well-lit sidewalks and pathways
  • Watch for cars that are turning or backing up. Teach children to never dart out into the street or cross between parked cars.
  • Decorate costumes with reflective tape or stickers, and choose face paint over masks.
  • If you’re driving, SLOW DOWN, put away your phone, and be especially alert in residential areas
  • Make sure your headlights are on.
