Halloween safety, there’s an app for that!  Tim Herrington, the Director of the Floyd County Emergency Management Agency, encourages local residents to download the Floyd EMA mobile app to find a few tips to ensure the safe and happy celebration of Halloween. It is available free of charge via Google Play and Apple iTunes.  Safety tips are also online at www.ready.gov.

Since showers and thunderstorms are in the forecast, Herrington says it might be a good idea to have some indoor fun this Halloween.

If you and your family do get out and about on Thursday night, here is some advice from Herrington – make sure that trick or treaters are highly visible to those who might be driving through your neighborhood.

The Tree Walk around Rome that was set for Halloween has been postponed due to concerns over predictions of inclement weather.  It is now scheduled to take place on Tuesday, November 12th.  It will be led by Keith Mickler, UGA Extension Agent in Floyd County, and Terry Page, the Arborist for the City of Rome.

Floyd County E-911 has announced that the Treats Not Streets event that was to be hosted by the public safety community on Thursday at the Rome-Floyd County Law Enforcement Center has been cancelled because of the forecast.
