Its that spooky time of year once again and as you prepare for for Halloween activities, the Kenai Police Department wants to remind trick-or-treaters as well as of drivers of some important tips to keep everyone safe.
We spoke with Sgt. Ben Langham at KPD about staying safe on All Hallows Eve.
Sgt. Langham: “As Halloween approaches this year, the Kenai Police Department would like to remind parents and children to stay safe out there while trick or treating. One of the basic things a parent can do is to ensure that their kids are visible that night, it can be accomplished by dressing the kids in bright colors and adding reflective tape to their costumes, they can also give them flashlights and glow sticks. We also ask that parents keep their kids trick or treating in groups if possible and stay to the side of the road. Older kids should let an adult know where they plan to trick or treat and stick to that plan. As for drivers on Halloween night please be mindful of our trick or treaters out there and drive slowly through our neighborhoods so that we can all have a fun and safe evening.”
