Community Update by Paul S. Wilson

Fire Chief

Your Cathedral City Fire Department wants you to enjoy a safe Halloween and be aware of the following safety precautions:

Walk Safely

• Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks.

• Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking for vehicles as you cross. 

• Put electronic devices down and keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street.

• Always walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible. 

• Children should walk on direct routes with the fewest street crossings.

• Watch for cars that are turning or backing up. Teach children to never dart out into the street or cross between parked cars. 

Trick or Treat With an Adult

• Children under the age of 12 should not be alone at night without adult supervision. If kids are mature enough to be out without supervision, they should stick to familiar areas that are well lit and trick-or-treat in groups. 

Keep Costumes Safe

• Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and, if possible, choose light colors.

• Choose face paint and makeup whenever possible instead of masks, which can obstruct a child’s vision.

• Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and wear reflective wristbands to be seen by drivers. 

• When selecting a costume, make sure it is the right size to prevent trips and falls.  

Drive Extra Safely on Halloween

• Slow down and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods. Children are excited on Halloween and may move in unpredictable ways.

• Take extra time to look for kids at intersections, on medians and on curbs.

• Enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and carefully.

For Emergencies Dial 9-1-1
