Halloween Safety Tips
Tips for a Safe Halloween
Halloween can be a fun holiday for kids, but a worrisome one for parents. Concerns about children’s safety–whether they are out in the neighborhood or back home with bags of candy–can darken the day more quickly than a black cat. But not to worry! To make Halloween a treat, follow these safety tips.
• Make sure the path to your door is clear, welcome trick-or-treaters with your porch lights and turn on any exterior lights.
• Patrol your street occasionally to discourage speeding motorists, acts of malicious mischief and crimes against children.
• Report any suspicious or criminal activity to your police department immediately
• Do not give homemade or unwrapped treats to children.
Exercise extreme caution when driving a vehicle. Be on the alert for excited youngsters, whose vision may be obscured by masks, darting out into traffic.
• Do not go inside anyone’s home. Remain on the porch at all times.
• Do not accept rides from strangers and be sure children do not approach any vehicle, occupied or not.
• Remind kids to keep a safe distance from moving cars.
• Cross only at street corners, never between parked cars, and never diagonally across an intersection.
• Look in all directions before crossing the street and obey all traffic signals. Walk, never run, across the street, and use sidewalks, not the street, for walking.
• Do not take shortcuts through back yards, alleys or parks.
• TRICK OR TREAT TIPS
Make sure your kids dress up safely
• Make sure costumes are flame retardant so children are not in danger near burning jack-o-lanterns.
• Keep costumes short to prevent trips, falls, and other bumps in the night.
• Make sure kids wear light colors or put reflective tape on their costumes.
