Staying Safe This Halloween

Both Novi and Northville have offered a few tips and tricks on how to stay safe this Halloween. Here are a few of those tips and tricks.

  • Only trick or treat at well-lit houses and remain on the porch.
  • Go trick-or-treating in small groups with an adult.
  • Always bring a flashlight.
  • Parents should supervise trick-or-treating for any children under the age of 12.
  • Look carefully at all treats before consuming.
  • Be careful of eating any homemade candies and stick to eating factory wrapped candies only.
  • Stay on sidewalks whenever possible.

Happy Halloween from all of us at the Jamey Kramer Group, and we hope you have a wonderful time trick-or-treating in either city.
