Public Safety in DC: Understanding evacuation routes and staying informed with AlertDC notifications are crucial for a safe Halloween experience.

Staying Street Smart: Safety is a collective effort. Stay alert, especially in the evening, travel in groups, and report any unusual activity. Let’s watch out for one another.

Halloween Costume Hacks: Opt for fire-resistant costumes and enhance visibility with reflective tape. Choose makeup over masks for clearer vision and reduced risk of tripping.

Trick-or-Treat Tips: For young trick-or-treaters, having company is essential. Sticking together adds an extra layer of safety. For older kids, set a return time to ensure they’re back before it gets too late. And as always, thoroughly inspect all candy before indulging.

Safety Tips for Hosting Parties: If you’re hosting a Halloween gathering, prioritize safety. Never serve alcohol to minors and limit invites to people you know for a comfortable atmosphere. Avoid leaving candles unattended, and keep exterior lights on for visibility. Lastly, arrange for a sober driver or alternative transportation options to get your guests home safely.
