Traffic Safety & Halloween Safety Tips

Hope you are enjoying the rainy dark weather.  It's a reminder that winter is on its way and soon we will be headed to work and school in the dark and headed home in the dark as well.


It's critical in these rainy dark conditions that we slow down, leave extra distance between your car and the car in front of you, and watch out for kids headed to and from school.  Also, parents, please make sure your kids have some reflective material visible.  A good place is on their backpack or jacket or something they take with them every day.  The little red flashing bike lights are a great option to clip on to their backpack as well, as long as they turn them on! trick-treat-bucket.jpg


Halloween is this week
tomorrow!  Here are some tips to keep in mind as you are planning
  • Children should trick-or-treat during daylight hours when possible.
  • Children should never be allowed to go out alone on Halloween.
  • Children should never eat any treats until they have been examined. (keep in mind with the new marijuana laws we are starting to see foods/candies that contain marijuana)
  • Advise children that they should never enter strangers' homes.
  • Never invite children into your home.
  • Children should never accept rides from strangers.
  • Children should never take shortcuts through backyards or alleys.
  • Set a specific time limit for your children to be out on Halloween night.
  • Give wrapped homemade treats only to children you know.
  • Instruct children not to stray from their group.
  • A responsible adult should escort children while trick-or-treating.
  • Adult escorts should carry flashlights.
  • Don't leave your home unattended on Halloween night.
  • Keep pets inside your home, or other safe place on Halloween night.  
  • Parents should know what route their children will be taking.
  • All costumes should be made of light-colored, fireproof material.
  • Children should wear proper fitting, comfortable costumes and shoes.
  • Realistic replica firearms should never be used.
  • Masks should not be worn if they impair vision.
  • Wigs should be fireproof and should not restrict vision.
  • Children should always use sidewalks, not the street, for walking.
  • Children should look in all directions before crossing the street

Have a safe and fun Halloween!
