ith jack-o’-lanterns carved, and trick or treaters preparing to haunt the roadways of our communities, the RCMP remind ghosts and goblins to have a safe and fun evening.
“Make no bones about it, Halloween is an exciting time for children of all ages,” says Corporal Mike Rail spokesperson for the UFVRD. ”We encourage parents to talk with your kids about being safe before starting out for the evening, and remind motorists to slow down and be watchful for pedestrians.”
Agassiz: “Kids look forward to wearing costumes and ‘trick or treating’ at Halloween,” says Sergeant Darren Rennie of the Agassiz RCMP. “Talk to your children about being safe before they go out and, drivers remember, to slow down and be diligent on this spooky night.”
“Halloween is a fun time of
year and the Hope/Boston Bar RCMP is looking forward to seeing the little ghosts
and goblins out trick or treating. Those planning on driving, please take extra
care and be mindful of the children,” says Staff Sergeant Karol Rehdner of
Hope/Boston Bar RCMP. “We will be out for Halloween ensuring everyone is safe.
Look for us…we will be in our costumes too.”
• Do not go trick or treating alone. Children should be accompanied by a responsible adult.
• Be seen - wear bright costumes and carry a flashlight, glow stick or have reflective tape on your costume.
• Wear a mask with eye holes large enough to allow you to see your surroundings – consider make-up.
Bigger than kids:
• Use a buddy system and do not go out alone.
• Do not approach houses that have lights off.
• Let your parents know where you are going and when you will be home.
