Happy Halloween! Help Us Keep Trick-or-Treaters Safe Tonight

On this special All Hallows Eve, we ask you to review some quick safety tips to help keep our neighborhoods safe this evening:

  • Keep trick-or-treaters safe when visiting your home - Remove anything that could cause kids to trip or fall. Make sure the lights are on outside your home and light the walkway to your door, if possible.
  • Drive with extra caution – Reduce speed and watch for children who may dart into the street unexpectedly, particularly during peak trick-or treating hours between 4:00 - 8:00 p.m.
  • Help trick-or-treaters remain visible – Provide flashlights, glow sticks or reflective clothing or tape. Cross streets at intersections, not from between cars parked on the street.
  • Prevent falls – Avoid running and be aware of your surroundings. Be sure costumes are an appropriate length to prevent trips and that masks do not impede vision.
  • Inspect all candy before consumption – Beware of loose wrappers, unwrapped or homemade candy.

We hope you all have a safe and happy Halloween!
