Some help­ful tips for Hal­loween safety

It is that time of year and we need to rec­og­nize that young peo­ple are not only trick or treat­ing on Hal­loween, but the week lead­ing up to it as well. Please drive safely this Hal­loween and be ex­tra care­ful dur­ing the Hal­loween hours. Watch for them be­cause they will not watch for you.

• Al­ways wear makeup in­stead of a mask, since it al­lows for bet­ter vi­sion; • Al­ways carry a flash­light; • Wear bright colour cos­tumes; • Al­ways trick or treat with a group or your par­ents;

• Do not cross back and fourth the road, up one side, down the other.

Community polic­ing events

• Be on the look­out for Pump­kin Pa­trol on Hal­loween night. Look for the community ser­vices van and get a spe­cial sur­prise pack­age from the RCMP, Crime Preven­tion, and Com­mu­ni­ties Against Vi­o­lence, and youth vol­un­teers.

• Re­mem­ber the RCMP Chil­dren’s Wish Tree will be lit on Dec. 1 in Bay Roberts and Dec. 2 in Har­bour Grace. This year we will keep the trees lit all sea­son and when we reach $1,000 in do­na­tion we will light the Chil­dren’s Wish Cloud in front of the tree.
