Great Halloween Tips for Parent from the Child Resource Center

The Parent Child Resource Center wishes all of you a very Happy and Safe Halloween! As we prepare for trick or treaters, we thought to send some useful tips for adults and children

  

HALLOWEEN SAFETY TIPS

Walk Safely

  • 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.

 

  • Teach children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.

 

  • Always walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are not sidewalks or paths, be sure to walk facing traffic, as far to the left as possible.

 

  • 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.

 

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

           

Happy Halloween!

An Open Streets Family Reunion: Reflections from the 2018 Open Streets Summit

By Ryan O’Connor, Director of Programs, 8 80 Cities Recently 8 80 Cities wrote a blog post about open streets being a labour of love.

Partnership for the Bay's Future, in Close-Up

An article in the Bay Area magazine Gentry takes a careful look at how Partnership for the Bay's Future, LISC's collaboration with the San Francisco Foundation, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, Genentech, the Ford Foundation, Kaiser Permanente and others is tackling the region's extreme affordable housing shortage, alongside transportation access and economic opportunity. "Housing has to be considered everybody's challenge and everybody's opportunity," says LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones in the piece. That collective ownership and the diversity of sectors in the partnership "are the only way we're really going to make true progress."

Talent Development Catalyzes Opportunity

A strong and vibrant workforce helps fuel community growth as well as business success. That’s why Union Pacific Railroad is supporting LISC Financial Opportunity Centers and contributing the expertise of its staff to industrial training programs that help people compete for family-sustaining jobs. Union Pacific’s Chiquita Morgan urges employers to "get out from behind our walls" and help advance the efforts of workforce development agencies, neighborhood groups and others who are helping people build a stronger financial future for themselves and their community.
