Ambulance chiefs urge trick or treaters to avoid roads
AMBULANCE chiefs are urging Halloween revellers to use their common sense to reverse rising emergency calls on October 31.
Calls to the Welsh Ambulance Service (WAS) increased from 420 in 2010 to 522 in 2012.
Parents are urged to accompany children trick or treating and ensure they carry a torch, glow stick and wear reflective clothing to make them visible to drivers. Trick or treaters should stay on streets they are familiar with and stick to the pavements.
WAS interim director Mike Collins said: "Traditionally, emergency calls to our ambulance service soar at this time of year."
