A number of city agencies will be doing their part this Halloween to make sure that all of the ghosts and goblins traveling the streets have a safe night. Patrols will be provided by the city for this Halloween program called Partners for Safety.
There will be more than 800 cars and vehicles patrolling the streets of Calgary tonight to keep Halloween safe. Organizations that are taking part in this program include the Calgary Fire Department and AHS Emergency Medical Services.
Here are some last-minute safety tips that the city is recommending:
- Don't use shortcuts through private property, lanes or alleys
- All treats should be checked by an adult
- Wear reflective clothing that's light and bright
- Don’t crisscross the roads - trick-or-treat
