SAFETY TIPS FOR HALLOWEEN Halloween is approaching, and we expect large groups of children to be out and about that evening, enjoying the festivities. Our primary concern on Halloween, and any other time, is the safety of children. With that in mind, we would like to offer the following safety tips. It is a good idea to review these with your children before they begin their trick-or-treat adventure. 1. Fake knives, swords, guns, and other costume accessories can potentially cause injury. Make sure they aren’t too long for the costume and review with your child that they are part of the costume and not a weapon. Make sure they are made out of cardboard or other flexible materials. 2. Only purchase costumes and accessories that are marked flame-resistant. 3. Keep costumes short to prevent trips and falls. 4. Try using makeup instead of a mask. Masks can obstruct a child’s vision, which can be dangerous when kids are crossing streets and going up and down stairs. 5. Costumes with light colors and/or reflective tape are best. Someone in the group should carry a flashlight. Consider putting reflective tape on their candy bags too. 6. Children should always trick-or-treat in groups, rather than alone, preferably with adult supervision. Children should carry a cell phone for quick communication. 7. Parents should select the safest route for children to take. Children should stay on sidewalks (where available) or on the shoulder of the roadway facing traffic. Children should avoid walking in the roadway, in alleys or poorly lit areas, and be cautious not to dart from behind shrubs or parked vehicles. 8. Drivers should slow down and use extreme caution, especially in neighborhoods where children are sure to be located. 9. Children should be instructed to stop only at familiar homes where the outside lights are on. They should also be advised to NEVER go into a home or car to collect treats. They should not stop at houses that are dark or do not have the porch lights turned on. 10. As an alternative of going door-to-door, parents can take their children to community-sponsored events such as those hosted by community centers, churches, schools, etc. 11. Children should not eat any treats until they get home and a parent or adult can examine them. 12. Children (and adults) should only consume unopened candies and treats in original wrappers. Treats with open packaging or torn wrappers should be discarded. For more Halloween safety tips, please visit https://www.safekids.org/tip/halloween-safety-tips. With a little preparation, communication and diligence, Halloween can be a safe and enjoyable evening. Of course, we will be on patrol and available to you and your children should you need us. Thank you for your cooperation.

As you all wake up this morning and carry on with your day, remember.... Remember these times 8:46, 9:03, 9:37 and 10:03 Remember 2977 total, remember 343 were firefighters, remember 60 were police officers, remember 8 were EMTs Remember all those that rushed up the stairs while everyone else was running down. Remember all those that found the courage to take back a plane. Remember those who volunteered to serve in Afghanistan, Iraq or other hostile lands and never returned. Remember all the families that will never be the same. And remember that real heroes don't have capes or super powers or jerseys. And remember they may have wounded us, but they will never break our spirit. They may have scared us, but we will not cower in fear. Remember forever and remain united together.
