Halloween Tips to get You and Your Candy Home Safe
2017-10-27 10:01 PDT
Halloween only comes once a year and the excitement of a bag full of candy can cause us to forget the regular safety precautions we use every day. For that reason, the Richmond RCMP have compiled a few tips and tricks to keep our ghosts and goblins safe this Halloween.
- Make it a party and trick-or-treat in groups - younger children should be accompanied by an adult or guardian.
- Stay Visible: Stay on the sidewalk or the shoulder facing traffic and use a flashlight to see where you are going.
- Try to incorporate clothing with reflective markings into your costume or jazz up your costume with flashing lights or reflective tape.
- Stranger Danger: Stick to familiar neighbourhoods and only approach houses which have the outside lights turned on. Avoid entering a stranger’s home or car for a treat.
- Fireworks not required, stick to the treats. Every Halloween, hospital emergency rooms prepare to treat both children and adults for firework-associated injuries.

"The Richmond RCMP is committed to the safety of our community. Extra officers will be conducting patrols in our neighbourhoods to make sure everyone can enjoy a safe and spooktacular evening," says Cst. Jon Francis.
