Halloween Safety Tips for Trick or Treating

The air is feeling (slightly) cooler, bags of candy line the supermarket shelves, and pumpkin patches are getting busy. This can only mean one thing: Halloween is here! So in the spirit of celebration, here are some safety tips for your family to have a great time trick or treating this year.
  • Don't let kids go trick or treating alone. Have them walk in groups or with a trusted adult. 
  • Kids should only go to homes with a porch light on and never enter a home or car for a treat. 
  • A good meal prior to trick or treating will discourage kids from filling up on Halloween candy. 
  • Swords, knives, and similar costume accessories should be short, soft and flexible. 
  • Always test make-up in a small area first. Remove it before bedtime to prevent possible skin and eye irritation. 
  • Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips, and falls.
  • Remind drivers to watch our for trick or treaters and to drive safely. 
  • Put electronic devices down and keep heads up and walk, don't run, across the street.
