Halloween is an occasion widely celebrated across the country. It is the one-day that people of all ages can dress-up in elaborate costumes to parade in public and celebrate with their community. Most often, Halloween is celebrated with friends and family but the anticipation of coming across strangers as you compare costumes and exchange tricks, or treats is inevitable. Although Halloween is meant to be fun, there are safety measures that you should consider to keep your home, children and community safe.
Be aware of your surroundings and the potential risks in your community. Children’s safety should be top of mind but don’t forget that anything can happen, so it is equally important for you to stay alert.
