Snoqualmie firefighters to hand out safety strobe balls on Halloween

To bring attention to Halloween safety, Snoqualmie fire fighters will be visiting local neighborhoods on Thursday, Oct. 31, to hand out hundreds of safety strobe balls. These balls can be carried in hand and will help drivers spot trick-or-treaters.  Parents could also add reflective tape to costumes so children will be more visible, especially for those kids planning to wear dark outfits.

Check out the “Lucky 13 Tips for a Safe Halloween” on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration website for information about food safety, costume and make-up safety, color contact lens warnings, and more.

Bring the little ones to the annual Treat Harvest in Historic Downtown Snoqualmie.  Children five and under can wear costumes and gather treats from store to store. Look for the balloons at participating merchants.
