Wood Buffalo would like to remind trick or treaters and their parents of a few tips for a safe evening of candy collecting.
Trick or Treaters should:
• Carry a flashlight so you can see where you are going.
• Stay on the sidewalks.
• Stay on one side of the road until you can cross safely at a crosswalk.
• Don’t cut across yards or driveways.
• Travel with a group of friends if mature enough to be out unsupervised, and stay in familiar neighborhoods.
• Ensure your costume has reflective pieces, so that you are easily visible to traffic.
• Ensure your mask does not impair your vision or hearing. Consider wearing makeup instead of a mask.
• Dress warm enough for the weather.
• Never enter a stranger’s house.
• Have all candy checked by an adult if you have any allergies, and to confirm it was not tampered with.
• Ensure your house is well lit.
• Keep pets indoors and away from trick-or-treaters.
• Keep walkways obstacle free
• Report any suspicious activities to the police.
• Drive sober
• Avoid residential areas while trick or treaters are out.
• Slow down and watch for children that may be using cross walks or on the road.
• Do not drive while wearing costumes that could impede your vision, hearing, or ability to drive properly. ...
