File # 2017 Halloween Safety



Soon our city streets will be inundated with hundreds of children, dressed in a variety of costumes participating in one of the biggest celebrations of the year- Halloween. The Nanaimo RCMP is once again urging all motorists to use extreme caution throughout the day for darting goblins.

When kids are excited they often throw caution to the wind and everything their parents told them about safety. For that reason, it is essential parents and caregivers keep their young ones on tight rein when trick or treating, said Constable Gary O'Brien of the Nanaimo RCMP.

Please follow these simple but effective tips when going door to door on Halloween:


Door to door

On the streets

Apres trick or treating

As a reminder, firecrackers are prohibited to use or possess and fireworks can only be discharged with prior approval obtained by the City of Nanaimo Fire Chief. Simply being in possession of fireworks may cost you a $200 fine under the City of Nanaimo fireworks bylaw.
