Halloween Safety

Tips for Halloween Safety

Halloween is one of the most exciting and most memorable days of the year. Kids of all ages love to dress up and go Trick-or-Treating.

Unfortunately, not everyone has the same idea of fun.

  • Traffic accidents can happen when kids walk in the streets from house to house.
  • Older kids will often bully younger kids and even steal their candy (or worse).
  • Sociopaths have been known to alter the treats they give, thinking the damage they cause is somehow funny.

Here are some things you can do to keep Halloween safer for you and your children.

Preparation:

  • Choose a costume made with flame-retardant materials.
  • Charge up your cell phone.
  • Buy a flashlight, glow sticks, glowing bracelet, or reflective tape.
  • Prepare a good dinner.

Trick-or-Treating

  • Go with your younger children. If you have older children, try to get them to “take care of” their younger brothers and sisters.
  • Carry a cell phone or give your phone to your child.
  • Travel in groups.
  • Stick to neighborhoods where you know you are safe.
  • Carry a flashlight, wear a glow stick, a glowing bracelet, or some reflective tape so that motorists can see you in the dark.
  • Use sidewalks and stay off the roads.
  • Don’t go between buildings or down dark alleys.

 At Home:

  • Check all treats for evidence of tampering. Throw away anything suspicious.
  • Portion out the candy over several days, so as not to let your kids get sick.
