Stick to­gether at pump­kin fes­ti­val

The Hamilton Spectator - - Local -

NOR­FOLK COUNTY — Big crowds are ex­pected over the week­end for Water­ford Pump­kin­fest.

And par­ents and chil­dren should have a plan to find each other if they be­come separated, OPP ad­vise.

Here are few tips:

• Teach chil­dren to stay calm and stay in one lo­ca­tion if they be­come separated;

• Kids should ap­proach a po­lice of­fi­cer, fire­fighter or para­medic for help if lost;

• Don’t lose sight of chil­dren; it’s easy for them to be­come separated from you in crowds;

• Es­tab­lish a fam­ily meet­ing lo­ca­tion to re­con­nect if separated;

• Dress chil­dren in bright or re­flec­tive cloth­ing.

The fes­ti­val runs through to Sun­day.
