With its beautifully decorated homes and great community spirit, Montreal West is a very popular place on Halloween night! Our Public Security Officers will be patrolling the streets tonight to ensure everyone’s safety while trick or treating. Here are some basic safety tips when trick or treating:

  • Trick or treat on one side of the street at a time to avoid crossing unnecessarily
  • Walk around in groups
  • Ensure Halloween costumes fit well
  • Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and, if possible, choose light colors
  • Keep dry and warm
  • Stay outside while trick-or-treating, never enter someone’s home
  • Be sure an adult checks all Halloween candy before trick-or-treaters dig in
  • Drivers: slow down and be extra vigilant on the roads

Happy trick or treating!
