Halloween Safety

The Brockville Police would like to wish everyone a very fun and safe Halloween!

In doing so the service would also like to remind residents of a few safety tips for both trick-or-treaters and drivers:

Halloween Safety:

  • Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult
  • Fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags or bring a flashlight to help drivers see you
  • Always WALK and don’t run from house to house
  • Look both ways before crossing the street. Use crosswalks wherever possible
  • Only walk on sidewalks whenever possible, or on the far edge of the road facing traffic to stay safe
  • Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips, and falls
  • Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers
  • Enter homes only if you’re with a trusted adult. Only visit well-lit houses. Don’t stop at dark houses. Never accept rides from strangers
  • Carry emergency contact information

Driver’s Tips:

  • DON’T drink and drive
  • Slow Down
  • Drive with extra caution, children may be excited and distracted and have reduced visibility from costumes

Happy Halloween !!
