RNC Release Halloween Safety Advisory
(St. John’s, NL), October 30, 2014 - On Friday, October 31, 2014, thousands of children in Newfoundland and Labrador will be trick or treating in various residential neighborhoods throughout RNC jurisdiction. The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary is asking parents, children and drivers to take extra precautions on Halloween night. To ensure a safe and Happy Halloween, the RNC would like to remind everyone of some simple and basic safety tips that will help protect all Trick-or-Treaters:
DRIVERS: Drivers are asked to reduce their speed significantly and use extra caution especially in residential areas. Children are very excited about this special day and may rush back and forth between parked vehicles, so you must remain alert at all times.
PARENTS: Parents can ensure their children enjoy a pleasant and safe Halloween by doing thefollowing: • Encourage costumes that include face make-up and/or enlarge the eyes on masks to ensure the child’s vision is not obstructed. • Ensure children wear properly fitted costumes or clothing that is made of bright or reflective materials. Reflective tape can also greatly increase visibility so that they can easily be seen by motorists. • Check all treats (at home) before a child is permitted to eat them. Only allow children to eat candies and bars that are wrapped properly. Discard any items that appear to be tampered with. • Discuss the route that your children will take before leaving and make sure they know what time you expect them to be home.
• Stop, Look and Listen before crossing the street and only cross at marked designated pedestrian crossing areas.
• Go with a partner, group or responsible adult.
• Carry a flashlight and stay in well-lit areas.
• Visit only the front door of well-lit homes. Use walkways and driveways to approach homes. Running across lawns and gardens can be dangerous when hazards exist such as lawn furniture, steps and excavations.
• Never enter a home, apartment or a vehicle. Stay on the doorstep or sidewalk while trick-or-treating.
Royal Newfoundland Constabulary Patrol, Traffic and Community Service Officers will be patrolling all areas of our jurisdiction to ensure the safety of both motorists and pedestrians. As well, RNC Community Services Officers will be participating in the Pumpkin Patrol with Rogers employees. They will be patrolling the streets throughout the Northeast Avalon.
With everyone working together we can ensure a safe and Happy Halloween.
