Local Events

Halloween is here! Do your part to protect yourself and your children from Halloween hazards to ensure a fun-filled Halloween night.

Here are a few tips to make yourself and your children visible to motorists:

– Opt for costumes with light or bright colors.

– Carry flashlights or glow sticks.

– Walk on sidewalks whenever possible.

– Stay in groups.

Other important safety tips:

– Avoid masks. Instead, use face paint. Masks may hinder a child’s vision.

– Make sure your child’s costume is a manageable length – costumes that drag on the floor can lead to injury.

– Always escort young children.

– Examine candy before allowing your child to eat it. Discard treats in wrappers that look questionable.
