Lacombe Police remind trick or treaters to be safe

Halloween can be a time of both excitement and potential danger

Halloween Safety

The Lacombe Police Service would like to remind parents, guardians and children that Halloween can be a time of both excitement and potential danger. To help keep everyone safe, they are asking that everyone abide by the following safety tips Thursday October 31:

  • Carry a flashlight and choose a costume with bright colours and reflective material to increase visibility among drivers
  • Use makeup instead of masks as they can reduce a person’s ability to see obstacles, vehicles and other trick-or-treaters
  • Avoid long and oversized costumes that can be a tripping hazard
  • Walk— don’t run and remember to always stop, look and listen before crossing the street
  • Never jaywalk and only use crosswalks or intersections.
  • Never trick-or-treat alone and always go in a group or with an adult
  • If trick-or-treating with friends, tell your parents or guardian your route and when you will be home
  • Stay in familiar neighbourhoods and only go to homes that are well lit and taking part in Halloween
  • Never go inside a house to get your treat
  • Always have your treats checked by an adult before eating them

The Lacombe Police Service is also asking motorists to drive with caution and be on the lookout for trick- or-treaters throughout the afternoon and evening.
