Halloween and Veteran's Day are approaching soon!

Halloween and Veteran's Day are approaching soon!

 

The Halloween Holiday is coming up soon! We want to remind you to make safety a priority this Halloween when carving pumpkins, decorating, dressing up in costumes, and trick-or-treating.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has several safety tips to allow children to remain safe while still experiencing the fun and excitement that comes with Halloween.

  • Leave pumpkin carving to the adults. Child helpers can grab a spoon and scoop out the inside or use a marker to trace the design.
  • Battery-operated lights or glow sticks are recommended for decorations and are the safest option.
  • Use a ladder when hanging or removing decorations, and only use lights that have been tested for safety by a recognized testing laboratory.
  • Wear a costume that fits and avoid overly long or baggy costumes to prevent trips and falls.

For more information on having a safe and fun Halloween, visit the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

Halloween can be a safe and enjoyable evening for all with a little preparation, communication, and diligence. Of course, we will be on patrol and available to you and your children should you need us. As always, dial 911 in case of an emergency.

 

 

 

Veteran's Day, celebrated on November 11th every year, is a tribute to military veterans who have served in the United States Armed Forces. It is a day of remembering the sacrifices of those who have fought to protect our country.

We are humbled by the bravery and courage of the veterans in our community and our country - they are our neighbors, our friends, our families, and our loved ones. We want to thank all our veterans and their families for keeping our country safe.

We strongly encourage everyone to think of our veterans and thank them when you see them. We support and honor our veterans, not just on Veteran's Day but every day of the year.
