Oxford Trick or Treat tonight 5:30 - 7:30pm. Motorists use caution!

Trick or Treat is 5:30pm - 7:30pm tonight, 10/31. Motorists should use cautions and watch for pedestrians, ghosts, goblins, witches, and the likes.

Halloween Safety Tips:
•Choose bright, flame retardant costumes (Hint – Add reflective tape to costumes and candy bags!)
•Plan a trick-or-treating route in familiar neighborhoods with well-lit streets
•Make sure children know their home phone number and address in case you get separated
•Teach them how to call 911 in an emergency
•Teach children to say “No!” in a loud voice if someone tries to get them to go somewhere, accept anything other than a treat, or leave with them
•Never send younger children out alone – they should be with a parent or guardian, or another trusted adult
•Always walk younger children to the door to receive treats
•Don’t let children enter a home unless you are with them
•Be sure children do not approach any vehicle, occupied or not, unless you are with them
•Discuss basic pedestrian safety rules when walking to and from houses
