Halloween is one week away. Parents who have yet to purchase their kids’ Halloween costumes should keep these tips in mind – make sure that kids can see through their masks, and look for materials which do not pose a tripping hazard. This is the advice of Linda Patty, Life and Fire Safety Educator with the Rome-Floyd Fire Department.
Patty asserts that the RFD will be on hand for the Treats Not Streets event to be hosted by local public safety at the Law Enforcement Center in downtown Rome on Monday, October 31st.
Joe Costolnick, the Executive Director of Harbor House – The Northwest Georgia Child Advocacy Center (and a former law enforcement officer), encourages families to put safety first in their celebration of Halloween next Monday. Drivers especially need to be mindful of young trick or treaters that will be hitting the streets.
Harbor House will also participate in next Monday’s Treats Not Streets event. Costolnick indicates that families may reach out to the local non-profit for a Halloween safety pamphlet.
The Rome Braves recently announced that they will host their first-ever Trick or Treat Around The Bases oat AdventHealth Stadium next Monday, October 31st from 5 pm to 7 pm. Admission is free.
