Halloween is here and it's one of the most popular holidays in this country when masses of little ones and adult alike dress up as superheroes, television characters, villains, and many more will be out in the neighborhoods for some trick-or-treat fun. Please keep the following tips in mind to help both parents and kids keep safe while enjoying the festivities.
- Trick-or-Treaters need to see and be seen. Use face makeup instead of a mask which could make seeing difficult. Have a flashlight to light the way. Add reflective tape to costumes and trick-or-treat bags. If possible, have everyone wear light colored clothing.
- If possible use flame resistant costumes.
- Make sure adults know where the kids are going. A parent or responsible adult should ALWAYS accompany young children door-to-door.
- Be cautious around animals, especially dogs.
- Walk, don't run.
- Only visit homes that have a porch light on. Accept treats at the door and NEVER go inside homes.
- Walk only on sidewalks, NOT in the street. Look BOTH WAYS before crossing the cross walk. Don't cross between parked cars as this makes it difficult for cars to see you're there, and DON'T cut across yards or use alleys.
- Drivers- use extra caution as youngsters may forget to look both ways before crossing.
- An adult should check ALL goodies before letting the kids consume any of the treats. Make sure to remove loose candy, open packages and remove any choking hazards. Discard any items with brand names that you're not familiar with.
If you're planning to welcome trick-or-treaters to your home, follow these safety steps:
- Light the area well so young visitors can see.
- Sweep leaves on sidewalks, walk ways, and steps. Clear your porch or front yard from obstacles that can cause someone to trip over.
