Halloween Tips

 

Halloween is once again upon us – that wonderful time of trick or treating, ghosts, goblins, vampires and zombies. We love Halloween as much as the community does, but we are also concerned with your safety. We have compiled a few tricks and tips to make your Halloween a safer one.

  • Trick or treat in groups as there is increased safety in numbers. For children, please make sure an adult or appropriately aged guardian is accompanying them.
  • Fireworks are prohibited in many BC communities. Every Halloween many children (and adults) end up in hospital due to injuries from fireworks.
  • Dressing up for Halloween is fun. Unleash your creative spirit. Strike a pose, but please make sure your costume does not impair your vision and fits properly so you don’t have any unwanted tumbles. If the choice exists between a mask over your head vs. makeup, we would give the thumbs up to makeup.
  • Flash lights and proper illumination go a long way in making you more visible. Lights are cool.
  • Be cautious when crossing any street or roadway especially in areas of poor illumination.
  • For appropriately aged Halloween goers attending parties where alcohol is present, please arrange for a designated driver or alternate service to get home safely. We will have additional officers working during Halloween eve to keep our roadways safe.
