Burnaby RCMP and Burnaby Fire Department are coming together this year to ask Burnaby residents to keep safety top of mind for Halloween so that everyone can have a spook-takular night. Each year, both agencies respond to incidents that are easily preventable by following the advice and tips below.
 
Burnaby Fire Department Chief Joe Robertson says; Halloween is the busiest night of the year for Burnaby Fire Department. We ask that Burnaby residents follow the advice below to ensure that we can do our job and respond to everyone who needs our help this Halloween night.

Cpl. Daniela Panesar with Burnaby RCMP says; Whether they’re ghosts, werewolves, witches or clowns; adults and children need to ensure they’re visible to drivers when out trick-or-treating. We ask that you consider the following tips before leaving your home on Halloween.

As per a bylaw amendment passed last year, the sale of fireworks in Burnaby is illegal. Children and adults end up in hospital emergency rooms with serious injuries because of fireworks. They are not to be played with. For more information on the rules concerning the use of fireworks see the City of Burnaby website here.

Happy haunting!
