Halloween Safety from the Collierville Police and Fire Departments
The Collierville Police Department wants Collierville residents to follow these safety tips and use common sense to keep children safe this Halloween. Of course, if you see anything suspicious, call 901-853-3207 for non-emergency, or call 911 in the event of an emergency.
- Wear brightly colored or reflective costumes.
Many costumes are dark in color. They may be suitable for daytime use, but think about the lighting when your child will be out.
Every smoke alarm has an expiration date: What’s yours?
Does your home have a smoke alarm? According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the answer is likely yes: NFPA research shows that most American homes have at least one. But do you know how old your smoke alarms are? If you’re like most people, you’re probably not so sure. The Fire Department urges all Collierville residents to know how old their smoke alarms are, and to replace them every 10 years.

The animals at the Collierville Animal Shelter (CAS) are getting a paw up from the Collierville Herald.
Lyn Whitson, Publisher and Advertising Manager for the newspaper, said they have created a pet page that will run the first week of each month.
