Hal­loween

Fremantle Gazette - - NEWS -

is an ex­cit­ing time of the year for chil­dren, but it can also be a hec­tic time for par­ents and guardians. WA po­lice have put to­gether some tips to en­sure it runs smoothly and safely: ■ Plan a trick-or-treat route in fa­mil­iar neigh­bour­hoods with well­lit streets. ■ Chil­dren should never trick-or-treat alone and should be ac­com­pa­nied by a trusted adult. ■ Hold a torch while trick-or-treat­ing to help you see and oth­ers see you. ■ Look both ways be­fore cross­ing the street and re­mem­ber some cos­tumes might make it dif­fi­cult to see ve­hi­cles. ■ Eat only fac­tory-wrapped treats. ■ Only visit well-lit houses or those in­di­cat­ing they are par­tic­i­pat­ing in Hal­loween. ■ Never ac­cept rides from strangers. ■ Ad­vise chil­dren that they should never en­ter strangers’ homes. ■ Never in­vite chil­dren into your home.
