Halloween Safety Reminder

Post Date:10/31/2017 4:45 PM

Halloween is a great night to have fun and get to know your neighbors. While the fun of the holiday can be exciting for children, these safety tips can help you and your family have a happy and safe Halloween.

  • The most common danger to children on Halloween is being hit by a motor vehicle. To prevent accidents like these, attach reflective stickers or tape to your child’s candy bag or bucket, and have them carry a flashlight or glow stick.
  • Remind children to always use crosswalks and corners to cross the street. Event at these intersections, it’s important to ensure they look both ways before crossing as drivers will be distracted.
  • Talk with your child and plan-out a trick-or-treat route in a familiar neighborhood. Remind them to stay in well populated and lit areas.
  • Remind your child to never enter a stranger’s home unless accompanied by you or another supervising adult.
