Halloween - Be safe!
Halloween can be fun for everyone if safety is top of mind. Here are some safety tips for trick-or-treaters:
- always venture out with an adult;
- masks should have large-enough eye holes for good peripheral vision in order to look both ways before crossing the street;
- have a flashlight or glow stick to be more visible to traffic; and
- avoid costumes with long, trailing fabric that can cause kids to trip and are a fire hazard.
Malicious and nuisance fires during the Halloween season endanger people and property and these unnecessary and dangerous fires put first responders at risk.
