Halloween is just a day away, and the Juneau Police Department is offering safety tips for Trick-or-Treaters.
Lt. David Campbell said most of the advice is a “common sense” type of thing.
For pedestrians, watch for motorists and cross streets at designated crosswalks, if available. Pedestrians should also wear bright clothing, walk in groups, have adult supervision and carry a light source. Do not enter a stranger’s house and only accept unopened store-bought treats.
Motorists are encouraged to be mindful of foot traffic, to drive safely and to watch for people running from house to house in residential areas.
“JPD hopes that everyone has a safe and happy Halloween,” Campbell added.
To cut down on fire hazards, Capital City Fire and Rescue recommends using flameless LED candles instead of candles to decorate walkways and to keep decorations away from flames and heat sources.
