Woodland Hills wishes you a SAFE and Happy Halloween

The Woodland Hills Neighborhood Association would like to wish everyone a Happy Halloween. Please take a few minutes to review the following trick-or-treat safety reminders.

-It is the safest choice for children to always be accompanied by a responsible adult.

-Stop only at familiar houses in your own neighborhood.

-Instruct your children not to eat any treats until they bring them home to be examined by you.

-Instruct your child to never go into the home of a stranger or get into their car.

-Make sure your child carries a flashlight, glow stick or has reflective tape on their costume to make them more visible to cars.

-Let them know that they should stay together as a group if going out to Trick or Treat without an adult.

-Please explain to your children the difference between tricks and vandalism.

-Please exercise common sense and good judgement when carving pumpkins or including candles in your Halloween decorations.

The Dekalb County Non-emergency number is 404-294-2911. If you do experience or witness a crime, first notify police by calling 911, then please alert us at the Woodland Hills Neighborhood Association by emailing Kate Martin at secretary@woodlandhillsatlanta.org or Bobby Ward at treasurer@woodlandhillsatlanta.org.

Happy Halloween!

DECATUR – Governor Sonny Perdue issued an executive order declaring a state of emergency in DeKalb and 16 other counties affected by heavy rain and severe weather that passed through Georgia.

“The citizens of DeKalb are heartened that Governor Perdue has taken this swift and appropriate action to ensure that state and federal resources will be available to assist our county in the wake of this historic rainfall,” says CEO Ellis. “Our administration, along with the Board of Commissioners, looks forward to working closely alongside state officials to provide necessary relief to our citizens and the impacted communities. We are continuing to monitor the situation and provide needed information and resources. Citizens are encouraged to exercise caution when traveling outside of their homes and should continue to monitor local news services for changes occurring in the area.”
