Halloween Safety Tips

A few suggestions for parents to consider before your ghouls and goblins go out on Halloween.

  • Make sure costumes are flame-retardant and tell your children to stay away from open flames or burning jack-o-lanterns.
  • Keep costumes short to prevent trips, falls, and other bumps in the night.
  • Use make-up instead of a mask. Masks can reduce or obstruct a child’s vision.
  • Make sure the costume has bright reflective colors so they can be seen.
  • Plan a safe trick-or-treat route.
  • Trick-or-treat in groups for added safety. Parents should accompany young children.
  • Start early when there is still daylight. Flashlights should be in every group.
  • Visit familiar homes where the outside lights are on.
  • Tell your trick-or-treaters not to go inside a house, garage, or car.
  • Keep a safe distance from moving cars, use sidewalks and crosswalks.
  • Don’t eat any treats until they can be examined by parents.
  • Never eat candy from a torn or opened wrapper.

Most of all have fun, Happy Halloween.
