Trick or Treaters will be hitting the sidewalks on Sunday evening to celebrate Halloween. The Lethbridge Fire Department has some safety tips before heading out. When it comes to costumes, they say to try and avoid long costumes which can drag creating a tripping hazard. As well, if you have carved your pumpkin, it’s recommended you use a battery candle rather than an open flame to limit the possibility of a fire.
Fire Prevention Officer, Troy Hicks, says common sense is key to keeping everyone safe this weekend.
Hicks adds for anyone driving around on Halloween to slow down and don’t be in a rush as kids will be excited and may run out through a crosswalk.
