City Sends Safety Message For Halloween

Halloween is just a day away and the City of Saint John is reminding parents, motorists and the trick-or-treators themselves to be safe.
Children should have costumes that are visible at night and if not, they can add reflective tape to them and carry a flashlight.
Leah Fitzgerald tells CHSJ News homeowners need to think about fire safety too.
She says they should not use candles in pumpkins or jack-o-lanterns that are outside and use only battery-operated lights in outside decorations.

Fitzgerald adds many decorations made of crepe paper and dried flowers are highly flammable and should be kept away from all heat sources including light bulbs and heaters.

Motorists should keep in mind that a lot of children will be out walking around Sunday night and they should be extra cautious.
