PRINCE GEORGE, BC: It’s spooky time once again and that means kids, parents, and pets will be out walking, or driving, city streets to find those sweets. Each year we post tips, and even though many of you follow through, some still forget the rules due to excitement!
This year, the Quesnel RCMP sent out some tips for all of you to keep in mind of while having a great time with your family and friends… Have fun!!
Oh, below the safety message is some weather information for Halloween tonight! Keep warm.
The Quesnel RCMP would like to remind everyone to stay safe this Halloween. Pedestrians and Drivers are encouraged to being extra careful when walking or driving on Halloween Night.
Parents / Guardians are encouraged to ensure their Trick-or-Treaters:
- Wear light coloured costumes, have reflective tape on their costume or carry a flashlight or glow stick
- Young children should be accompanied by an adult
- Stay on the sidewalk. If there is no sidewalk, walk on the left side of the roadway facing traffic
- Ensure costumes are properly fitted to reduce tripping hazards
- Consider make up rather than masks to ensure vision is not restricted
- Don’t carry real swords, knives or firearms as part of a costume. Use other props
- Ensure masks are not worn when entering businesses
- Never enter a stranger’s house to retrieve treats; stay in neighbourhoods you know
- Trick-or-Treat in groups
- Keep your dog inside to protect them from noise and to prevent them from inadvertently biting a Trick-or-Treater
- Inspect your children’s treats and throw away anything that doesn’t appear to be commercially sealed
Police suggest parents / guardians have a conversation with their children about these safety tips and to always remain vigilant to any suspicious behaviour.
