SGT TRIMBLE’S HALLOWEEN SAFETY TIPS
■ Plan a trick-or-treat route in familiar neighbourhoods with well-lit 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 to 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.
