HALLOWEEN SAFETY TIPS FROM DC MPD

HALLOWEEN SAFETY TIPS FROM DC MPD

Walk Safely

Popular trick-or-treating hours are 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. so be especially alert for kids during those hours.

  • Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks.
  • Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross.
  • Put electronic devices down and keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street.

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 Both Creative and 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 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.

Eliminate any distractions inside your car so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings.

Drive slowly, anticipate heavy pedestrian traffic and turn your headlights on earlier in the day to spot children from greater distances.

Alert – Quebec House incident

Quebec House Management would like to inform all residents of an incident that occurred on Porter Street/Parking lot at approximately 2:30am on Monday, August 29, 2016.  Gunshots were fired from a vehicle on Porter Street in the direction of the Porter Street parking lot towards a group of people standing outside of their vehicles.  Nobody was hurt and police have apprehended suspects involved. 

The D.C. police think this is an isolated incident as this type of incident is not common in this area of the city.  However, we encourage residents to continue to use caution while walking outside in the late evening hours. 

Quebec House and the D.C. police officers in charge of the investigation have surveyed the parking lot and street where the incident occurred.

Quebec House will continue to assist the D.C. police department during this investigation in any way possible.
