Halloween Safety Tips

30 Oct 2018

Trick or Treat Nights are here! As you prepare your children to go door-to-door collecting goodies, keep these safety tips in mind:

Costume Safety

  • Use reflective tape on costumes and treat bags, or give your children glow sticks
  • Avoid masks that can obstruct vision, and instead use face paint/makeup
  • Make sure costumes are the right size to prevent trips and falls on a bulky costume

Walking Safety

  • Make sure your children are with a responsible adult and plan a familiar route in well-lit areas
  • Instruct your children not to eat any treats until they return home
  • Children and adults should put electronic devices down and walk, don’t run, across streets
  • Cross streets at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks
  • Always walk on sidewalks or paths

Driving Safety

  • If you’re driving on Halloween, watch for children on roadways and sidewalks
  • Enter and exit driveways and alleys carefully
  • Slow down and be alert in residential neighborhoods
