SGT TRIM­BLE’S HAL­LOWEEN SAFETY TIPS

Pinjarra Murray Times - - STREETWATCH -

■ 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.
