Hurricane Sandy Update from Chatham Borough and Chatham Township
Tuesday, October 30, 2012 • 5:56pm
CHATHAM, NJ - The Mayors of Chatham Borough and Chatham Township have released the following statement:
The Mayors request that home to home trick or treating be conducted on Saturday, November 3, 2012. Parents are encouraged to accompany their children when trick or treating. The Mayors recommend trick or treating be limited to daylight hours. There are many downed electrical wires. If parents permit children to trick or treat they should exercise caution, supervise the children and allow them to be out only during daylight hours.
Downed wires should always be considered to be “live.” STAY AWAY FROM ALL DOWNED WIRES. Do not approach or drive over a downed wire and do not touch anything which might be in contact with downed wires. Walking along streets without sidewalks is discouraged. When walking along the street please wear reflective clothing, stay on the shoulder or as close to the shoulder as possible. Parents should be reminded that areas in both communities are without power and that should be taken into consideration when choosing an area to walk.
Editor's Note: Trick or treating scheduled for downtown Chatham tomorrow has been canceled.
