Happy Halloween – safety tips for kids



Be Seen!
Halloween is spooky enough outside without having to worry about your child not being seen in the dark while trick-or-treating. Prepare your child’s costume for strong visibility at night by choosing a costume that can be made with bright materials. If the theme of the costume does not allow for bright colors, add reflective tape to your child’s costume or treat bag

Stay Away From Haunted Houses
Ensure your kids only visit houses with lights on. And, you might also suggest the houses they visit have some sort of Halloween decoration on the porch. Make sure your kids don’t go inside someone’s house. They can get their candy from the porch.

Take the Long Way
Trick-or-treat only in well-lit areas. Stay on streets that you are familiar with, and avoid taking shortcuts through parking lots, alleys, and pathways. If you’re not sure where a street goes or whether it is safe, don’t take a chance on it.

Halloween should be safe for ALL your little monsters
Halloween should be safe for all your little monsters. As much as your pets may beg for candy or treats, remember that chocolate can be deadly, in any amount, if ingested.
