Halloween Safety Tips

Some Halloween safety tips

  • Trick and treat in groups. There is safety in numbers.
  • Children younger than 12 should have a parent with them.
  • Children older than 12 should stick with familiar, well-lit neighborhoods and go together in a group. Remind them to stay out of the street and to use crosswalks.
  • Children should carry a flashlight or a glow stick
  • Decorate costumes and goody bags with reflective tape or stickers
  • Light color costumes are easier to see at night
  • The mask’s eye holes shouldn’t obstruct the child’s vision. Consider using face paint instead
  • The costume should be short enough that the child doesn’t trip on it.
  • Remind the children not to eat the treats until they get home and only after a parent has checked them.
  • Leave the electronics at home. The child may have a phone tuck away for an emergency, but that should be its’ only use. A child needs to be watching traffic, etc.

Additional information for homeowners:

  • Make sure walkways are well lit and all debris is picked up.
  • Don’t use open flames. Use flashlights and glow sticks instead.
  • Install non-slip treads on stairs
  • Turn on the lights signaling you are giving out treats and turn them off when done. Turn off all decorations.
  • Keep pets inside or in an enclosure
  • Put your car in the garage.
