Halloween Safety Tips

It’s one of the most fun evenings of the year for neighborhood children.  Keep the evening fun & safe with these top tips for keeping kids away from danger on Halloween night.

·        Be sure children are accompanied by a responsible, trustworthy adult at all times.

·        Research the area you’ll be trick-or-treating and know the streets in and around the community before you arrive.  Stay in well-lit and populated areas at all times.

·        Increase visibility of your trick-or-treating group with reflective tape, flashlights, and/or glow sticks so vehicles can easily see you at night.

·        Cross streets only at designated crosswalks, stop signs, or traffic lights.

·        Avoid using your smartphone or other device when out walking around.  Keep your full attention on your surroundings at all times.

·        Check costumes before heading out to make sure they are hemmed short enough to avoid trip-hazards.  Don’t know how to sew? Hem tape is available at most major retailers and craft stores that will allow you to quickly shorten costumes before heading out.

·        Never enter someone’s home for a treat.

·        Always carefully examine candy before eating.  Discard opened candy or anything that looks suspicious.

·        As a driver, drive with extra caution on Halloween night.  Pull out of parking spaces slowly and spend extra time at stop signs.
