Be safe while you trick-or-treat
by Nick Delgado
Guam - It's the sweetest time of the year for children who are dressed as their favorite superhero or princess for Halloween. But the Guam Police Department reminds parents and guardians to take extra precaution while out trick or treating this year.
GPD spokesperson Officer A.J. Balajadia said, "We want out parents to be aware of some of the dangers out there like inattentive drivers coming through the villages, anybody driving through the villages should pay attention and look out for children that may be crossing the street as they trick or treat."
He added, "Also, children should be wearing reflective tape and have flash lights with them and things that light up as they walk through the neighborhoods as it starts to get dark. Best suggestion is for parents to start early and end early when it comes to having small children and we want to make sure children do not eat the candy until parents go through the candy and see if there are any potential dangers that you discover.:
Just to be safe, you can also head to the main entrance of the Guam Memorial Hospital this evening until 10pm, as GMH is offering free candy x-ray screening.
