Halloween Safety Tips

 Halloween Safety Tips For Everyone

 Halloween is a favorite time, that's filled with fun, make-believe, and lots of candy.  Unfortunately, it's also become a time of risk for children. These safety tips can help to ensure that children have a safe and happy time while trick or treating.

Go trick or treating with an adult or a friend. If you do not go with an adult, draw two maps of the route you and your friends will take. Give one map to your parents and take the other with you.

  • Wear light-colored clothing.
  • Bring a flashlight along with you with new batteries.
  • Walk on sidewalks only. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic.
  • Cross at intersections only. Don't run from home to home or across streets.
  • Make sure eyeholes in a rubber or plastic mask don't restrict vision. Take off masks when crossing streets. You may want to use makeup instead of a mask.
  • Don't eat any treats until your parents have looked at them first.
  • Be home at a reasonable time.
  • Don't enter homes, always stay where parents or guardians can see you.
  • If you are approached by a stranger, head to any lighted house and ask them to contact your parents or the police.
