HALLOWEEN SAFETY TIPS: Halloween is an exciting night of the year for young children, but it is also a time for parents to be extra vigilant for potential safety hazards. The Elko Police Department wants everyone to have a happy, fun, and safe Halloween by following these safety tips: • Stay on sidewalks and use crosswalks • When crossing any street make sure you make eye contact with drivers of vehicles and they stop their car before crossing • Make a map of your route or of the neighborhoods you are going to visit • Carry a flashlight and have it on during hours of darkness • Travel in groups • Wear reflective clothing or bands • Consider attending organized community Halloween events Never go into a stranger’s house or get into a stranger’s vehicle. Adults should always check Halloween candy before a child eats it. Dispose of anything that may have been tampered with, opened or unwrapped

Thank you everyone who came out and enjoyed the Nevada Day Parade.
