Halloween Safety

This Sunday, October 24 at 7am, I will be on the Greensboro Clear Channel radio stations with Cpl. Jeremy Fuller of the Guilford County Sheriff's Office to discuss Halloween safety tips with Dennis Elliott. If you're up, hope you'll listen!

The following morning, I will be on WFMY The Good Morning Show to discuss Halloween safety with Tracey McCain. The hits will air live at 6:20am and 7:20am, so watch if you can! (I always love going to the studio for interviews, but the exhaustion that sets in mid-afternoon is difficult--I must be well-caffeinated.)

I'll also be at the Natural Science Center on Thursday, October 28, 4:30pm-7:30pm for the Zoo Boo Bash. This scare-free event will offer spook-tacular games, crafts, face-painting and trick-or-treating! Kids should come in costume and be ready for tons of fun. Ticket information can be found at the Natural Science Center.

If you can't listen to the radio, watch the News 2 segments or go to the Zoo Boo Bash, please remember that kids need to be visible and drivers need to pay attention on Halloween. Kids are 2 times more likely to be hit by a vehicle and killed on Halloween than any other night of the year. Glow-in-the-dark costumes, face-paint and accessories, like glow-sticks and flashlights, go a long way to make kids visible. Drivers need to put down that cell phone! Calls and texts can wait until you are stopped.
