Tips for a Scary Safe Halloween!


Happy Halloween! Halloween gives everyone a chance to live out their imagination through creative costumes or characters from our favorite movies. If you’ll be attending a Halloween party this coming weekend, we wish you a safe and spooktacular celebration! If you have children who still love to trick or treat, well you’re lucky that they haven’t grown up too fast; but more importantly, we have some great tips to ensure their safety tonight. Remind your little ghouls, goblins, super heroes and fairy princesses to follow these tips for a safe and happy Halloween.

Keep fun age-appropriate.

Always accompany children under age 10 and don’t let them get too far ahead of you. Children over age 10 should be with at least two friends and stick together the entire evening.

Know your route.

Go trick-or-treating in a neighborhood you’re familiar with and make sure older children tell you their itinerary. Have a set time they need to be home.

House rules.

Only go to homes with lights on. If someone doesn’t answer after ringing the doorbell twice, just leave. Don’t bank on the door or yell. Never go inside anyone’s house without a trusted adult.

Use a flashlight or glow sticks and necklaces.

Light your way safely and walk on sidewalks and driveways. Don’t shortcut through backyards, alleys or parks.

Street safety.

Never run across the street. Cross only at corners or marked cross walks. And always look both ways before crossing.

Pumpkin protection.

Pay extra attention to make sure younger children don’t trip or fall around lit jack-o-lanterns on front steps and walkways.

Lug your loot home.

Tell your kids NOT to eat or open any candy until they get home. Check your kids’ candy for tampering. Throw away candy with ripped or open wrappers, unwrapped candy, fresh fruit, and homemade candy or treats.
