Halloween Safety Tips
Stay Safe and Have Fun
Driving on Oct. 31? Expect the unexpected – slow down and look for pedestrians. There will be more foot traffic on Halloween, so give yourself extra time to navigate residential streets and stay alert.
Keep pets safe too. Fireworks and costumed strangers can be alarming for pets, potentially causing them to run off, jump out open windows or dart into traffic. Make sure your dog or cat wears identification and has permanent ID such as a tattoo or microchip. Keep human treats out of your pet’s reach – candy is unhealthy and can be toxic.
Do you love pumpkins? So do bears! If you are displaying them outside, only do so on Halloween and do not leave them out overnight because bears like to eat them. After Halloween, remember pumpkins are compostable so you can dispose of them in your Green Cart.
