Halloween is fun for the whole family, it provides us with another opportunity to make memories with our families and the community. It is just as important that everyone be safe as it is for everyone to have fun! It is encouraged that every adult speak to their children on ways to keep themselves safe. Below is a list of suggestions and ideas that can help everyone have a happy and safe Halloween.
-Bring your phone in case of Emergency
-Drive 5-10mph under the speed limit do to the added foot traffic
-Only accept and give unopened and wrapped treats.
-Avoid accepting homemade treats
-All candy should be examined for choking hazards
-Never go into a stranger's home
-Accompany your children or travel in groups
-Stay in well lit areas or during daylight
-Make sure costumes don’t become tripping hazards and all masks are easy to see through.
-Use bright colored flame resistant costumes so children are better seen Glow sticks and Flashlights provide a great light source
-Check makeup for ingredients that may cause allergic reactions
-Use caution when accessorizing with weapons that others may consider threatening (guns, knifes, swords, chainsaws)
If you find any suspicious treats do not eat them and NOTIFY THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY so other people can be warned and the responsible person can be arrested. Safety of you and our community is of the utmost importance to us.
Have a SAFE and HAPPY Halloween!!!!
