Pokémon on Post — Following up on the article about the Pokémon Go sightings on the garrison footprint (“Catch ‘em all … on post – safely – at USAG HI”, p. B-2, July 15), the Safety Office offers a few more suggestions to make your hunt safer, on or off post:

  • Be aware of your surroundings and pay attention to who/what is around you.
  • If you get the sense you are being followed or set-up for a robbery, head to a lighted area with people around. If you feel your safety is in jeopardy or see something suspicious, call 911.
  • If walking, watch where you’re going and don’t look down at your phone while crossing streets or exiting your vehicle.
  • Don’t drive a vehicle or ride your bike while playing.
  • Obey all traffic and parking laws. Don’t stop on the roadway or at a location that will create a traffic hazard.
  • Know where your children are going and set limits. Talk with your children about stranger-danger as playing may bring strangers together at Poké Stops
  • Do not go onto private property, dark areas or locations that you would not go if you weren’t playing the game.
  • If you are outside for an extended period of time, be sure to stay hydrated and be aware of sunburn.
