While hunting season is in full swing, the Needham Police Department would like to remind all walkers and hikers of the following safety tips:
- When hiking in the woods, wear orange-colored clothing. An orange hat and vest are important safety features for any hiker.
- Avoid walking at dusk, which is a difficult time of day for visibility.
- Choose well marked and worn trails. It is better to stick to established trails and limit any off-trail or dense woods hiking.
- Always carry a cell phone.
