Siloam Springs Officer Josh Fritz did an interview with KURM radio regarding safety during Halloween and Trick or Treating.
•Take a digital photo of your kids.
•While it’s great for the scrapbook, it’s important to have a recent and detailed description in the event of an emergency.
•Make sure you child’s costume is safe.
•Is the fabric fire retardant? Does their mask have proper eye, nose and mouth openings? Can they walk easily in it?
•Use a buddy system.
•If you are headed out with a group, make sure there is a buddy
system in place. It’s easy for a child to get left behind or mixed in with other groups.
•Know who your kids are trick or treating with.
•Exchange phone numbers with your child’s friends and their parents. In the event of an emergency, you can notify them.
