    Halloween is coming up, and the Gwinnett County Department of Fire and Emergency Services wants to remind you to be safe. Here are a few tips to use on Halloween night: For your home: Only use decorations that are tested by an independent laboratory Never overload electrical outlets with holiday lighting or special effects Keep paper and dry decorations such as leaves, cornstalks, and hay bales away from open flames or any other heat source Use flashlights in jack-o-lanterns instead of candles to prevent a fire Avoid using decorative candles at Halloween festivities and parties, especially around pets and small children Eliminate tripping hazards on your porch or walkway to the front door; light the path for a safe entry and exit for children Costumes: Costumes should fit properly; baggy sleeves or billowing capes pose a tripping hazard as well as a fire hazard Use soft or flexible props for costumes and avoid those that have sharp points or jagged edges If kids are carrying toy weapons as part of their costumes, make sure they do not look authentic; use only soft or plastic toy replicas to prevent injury Carry a flashlight or glow stick as part of the costume Consider adding reflective tape to costumes and trick-or-treat bags for better visibility Choose costumes that are bright-colored and made of flame-resistant materials; look for a fire-retardant label on any store-bought costume More...

    As the leaves begin to fall this season, Gwinnett residents are getting outside to walk and run the trail systems found throughout the county. Walkers and runners now have a new trail to experience along the Ivy Creek Greenway. The newest section of the Ivy Creek Greenway adds 1.5 miles of trail to the existing walking and biking path located near the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center and the Mall of Georgia in Buford. This new section includes two boardwalks, an overlook, a 270-foot long cable-stayed bridge and a nature observation trail.In addition, a restroom building that serves the greenway and other patrons of the EHC was built as a part of this project. The trail can be accessed from the EHC at 2020 Clean Water Drive in Buford.Long range plans call for the greenway to connect to an existing section at George Pierce Park, creating seven miles of biking and walking opportunities. The Ivy Creek Greenway is open from dawn to dusk every day of the week. Funding for the $2.2 million project comes from a $1 million state grant from the Federal Highway Administration’s Transportation Enhancement Program and the County’s SPLOST program.For more information about SPLOST in Gwinnett County, visit www.gwinnettsplost.com.
