Have a Safe and Happy Halloween! 
Halloween Ghosts and goblins are preparing to haunt Roselle this Saturday between 4:00 and 8:00 p.m.

Halloween is a time for children. With this in mind, Roselle plans its trick or treat hours to accommodate all of them. This allows some daylight hours for the youngest cowboys and princesses and some time when it is a little darker for older witches and goblins. Please be careful while children are out enjoying this time.

  • Fluorescent bulbs
  • Linear fluorescent bulbs (4' and under)
  • Compact fluorescent bulbs
  • Circular fluorescent bulbs

Time Change? Time to Change the Batteries
DST Fall Back Daylight Savings Time ends this Sunday, November 1. The Village of Roselle and the Roselle Fire Department encourage residents to get in the habit of changing the batteries in smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors when changing the time on clocks for Daylight Savings Time each spring and fall.

Changing smoke alarm batteries is one of the simplest, most effective ways to reduce fire deaths and injuries. Make a change this fall that could save your life!
