Trick or Treat

Motorists are cautioned to watch for small trick-or-treaters in our neighborhoods during the afternoon and evening hours on Halloween. Parents are encouraged to accompany small children and instruct older kids to cross only at intersections, watch out for cars, approach only well lit homes and avoid dark or deserted areas. All treats should be inspected at home.

Trick or Treat Safety Tips

  • Avoid face covering masks which make it hard for children to see. Use face paint instead.
  • Be sure your child’s costumer is flame retardant and warn him/her to avoid open flames.
  • Be sure the child’s costume is visible at night.
  • Be sure to have the child carry a flashlight or glow stick at all times.
  • Have the children cross the street at intersections where it is well lit.
  • Tell your children not to eat any candy until you can check it for tampering.
  • Remind children to never enter a stranger’s home. Stay outside the door.
  • Have someone carry a cell phone and to call 911 in case of emergency.

Have a safe and happy Halloween.
